Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts.

Earth laughs in flowers.

I love Spring anywhere, but if I could choose, I would always greet it in a garden. Ruth Stout

One of the worst mistakes you can make as a gardener is to think you're in charge.

Die when I may, I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow. Abraham Lincoln

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

The butterfly is a flying flower, The flower is a tethered butterfly.

Blossom by blossom the spring begins.......

The tiniest garden is often the loveliest.

Gardeners, I think, dream bigger dreams than emperors.

I have never had so many good ideas, day after day, as when I worked in the garden.

What a pity flowers can utter no sound. A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle--oh, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be.

Anyone who has a bulb has spring.

The flower that follows the sun does so even in cloudy days.


And yes, the neighbors across the street DO have a pool. And no, that is not our green house. And no, the neighbors did not paint it that color to go with my gardens. And yes, that is corn you see to the left.

Aaaahhhhh! We still have green grass...long and lush it is since we now have no mower...but there are many birch leaves trying to hide it.
