"Suns and planets teach grand lessons" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 240); "spiritually interpreted, rocks and mountains stand for solid and grand ideas" (ibid., p. 511); and is not eternal Life, with its "beauty, grandeur, order," symbolized by the never failing return of spring?

The healing atmosphere consciously maintained at the Sanatoriums of the Christian Science Benevolent Associations is continuous, and admittedly constitutes the principal inducement to prospective visitors; but each season—spring, summer, autumn, winter—brings its own varied attractions. The unfolding of beauty which is taking place now at the Chestnut Hill (Massachusetts) Sanatorium is something to appreciate. From early spring, on through the summer months, there is a profusion of color in trees, flowers, shrubbery, mosses, and grasses. At this writing, immediately following the disappearance of the lovely and fragrant magnolia, cherry, and apple blossoms, small yellow roses, tulips, jonquils, lilacs, irises, pansies, and many dainty rock garden flowers and plants not only grace the lawns and terraces, but furnish generous bouquets, as does the Sanatorium greenhouse, to decorate the reception rooms, recreation rooms, dining rooms, offices, and corridors of all the buildings. And now, putting in their appearance, are the blooms of rhododendrons, peonies, mock orange, and varieties of roses.
