Lost Garden, part 2
Summer in the Garden
How grateful I am that we were given all this beauty and the opportunity to help in the creation of such loveliness.
"When the world wearies and society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden." ~ Minnie Aumonier
"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."
"Cares melt when you kneel in your garden."
"But each spring...a gardening instinct, sure as the sap rising in the trees, stirs within us. We look about and decide to tame another little bit of ground."
-- Lewis Gantt
"You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt."
"Gardening is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow
"In the Garden, my soul is sunshine."
"Where but in a garden do summer hours pass so quickly?"
"If you have a garden and a library you have everything you need."
"I garden, therefore I am."
