“Gardening is the art that uses flowers and plants as paint, and the soil and sky as canvas.” — Elizabeth Murray
The gardener is always learning, often pausing to contemplate life, growth, and change. For everyone who spends time in a garden, as Jane Hawking says, it’s an enduring and rewarding pastime. It’s an art that involves experimenting with and sharing creativity, colors, and produce — a process which sustains givers and receivers alike.
To be a gardener, according to Vita Sackwell-West, is to live in hope. From the dazzling return of perennials in spring to the excitement of looking at glossy seed catalogs and gardening websites in mid-winter, that hope is a year-round exercise.
“To dwell is to garden,” wrote Michael Heidegger. For so many of us, life just wouldn’t be the same without getting a little dirty from time to time. Getting our hands into the good earth and encouraging something to grow and blossom — that adds flavor and fragrance to a home regardless of its size or location.
The quotes in this book come from novelists and poets, philosophers and statespeople, artists and entertainers. Most important, the quotes come from gardeners — all of them providing charming and thoughtful passages and inspiration for generations of growth and growers, and in that sense they’re all gardeners. $2.99 on Kindle.
