Working in the garden...
gives me a profound
feeling of inner peace.
Ruth Stout 1884 - 1980
American author, gardener

Gardening is cheaper
than therapy
and you get tomatoes.
Gardens are a form of autobiography.
Sydney Eddison,
Horticulture magazine,
August/September 1993
Still round the corner
there may wait
a new road
or a secret gate

In the garden there are no hours--only seasons
