A Visit to My Garden
Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.
Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.
How deeply seated in the human heart is the liking for gardens and gardening.
A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
Thanks for visiting my garden! :)
