Well, well, well. It's been a week of blood, sweat, and tears, shall we say, but the backyard garden is now spreading joy to the homeowners.
Someone once said that every garden is "an enchanted one."
Indeed. Especially when it is your own.
Large or small, the garden should look both orderly and rich.
~ William Morris, Hope and Fears for Art
I feel closest to God in my garden.
The poetry of the earth is never dead.
~ John Keats
Nature is the art of God.
~ Sir Kenelm Digby
Blossoms all around me sighing ...
~ Maria Gowen Brooks, "Song of Egla"
