To grow a garden and keep it thriving...is to master the ability to nurture, to feel the pulse of something greater than yourself. This is a gift that all do not posses, but those that do, are quite unique and irreplaceable.
“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.”
"In all things of nature there is something marvelous."
"It is only when you start a garden - probably after age fifty -
that you realize something important happens every day."
-Geoffrey B. Charlesworth
My Mom is the ultimate garden woman...in fact, I like to say the backyard is her jungle paradise...she has the greenest thumb of anyone I know, and truly lives the quotes I noted above.
