What Workmanship

W
 hat greater delight is there than to behold the earth appareled with plants as with a robe of embroidered works, set with Orient pearls and garnished with the great diversity of rare and costly jewels. But these delights are in the outward senses. The principle delight is in the mind, singularly enriched with the knowledge of these visible things, setting forth to us the invisible wisdom and admirable workmanship of almighty God.

– John Gerard, 1633, The Herbal
