The Glory Of Gardening



The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. Share the botanical bliss of gardeners through the ages, who have cultivated philosophies to apply to their own--and our own--lives: Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.

- Alfred Austin, 1835-1913
