I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow. -David Hobson
‘Tis the season for gardening, and my husband and I love to get our hands dirty.
We just returned from working in our small vegetable plot in the community garden here at Chautauqua, and this photo is of the shade garden in front of our cottage that we’ve been lovingly tending for several years. The garden is definitely a work in progress, but we’re learning so much about what we can grow and what we shouldn’t try here but save for another garden in our future.
I agree that there are many good reasons to garden, but the primary reason for me is the simple joy in seeing plants grow because of our loving care.
What could be better than that?
