Lost Garden Part 3
Fall in the Lost Garden
"The garden is a mirror of the heart."
We come from the earth, we return to the earth, and in between we garden."
"Darkening nights are drawing in Log fires are lit, the curtains close Gardens wait for the year to begin Inside gardeners warm their toes."
~ By David Squire
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
~ Rachel Carson
"But now in September the garden has cooled, and with it my possessiveness.
The sun warms my back instead of beating on my head ...
The harvest has dwindled, and I have grown apart from the intense midsummer relationship that brought it on."
~ Robert Finch, Poet
