Everyone needs a garden where you can commune with nature. It is a place where you forget all your worries and enjoy the beauty that Mother Nature gives us.
I always find peace and contentment in my garden. When I worked in the corporate world, I used to go outside when I got home to unwind. Here among the flowers with bees buzzing around, the birds frolicking and singing, and insects doing their thing, I love being in the garden, planting, weeding, taking care of the little things, or just admiring the beauty I created.
This blog is about my thoughts and impressions working in the garden over the years that I have been taking care of God’s Acres. It gives me great joy to now share them with you, my readers.
Thanks for visiting. Come again. If you enjoy this blog, leave a comment.
All the best,
As for our love of gardens, it is the last refuge of art in the minds and souls of many Englishmen; if we did not care for gardens, I hardly know what in the way of beauty we should care for.
Sir Arthur Helps
Companion of My Solitude (1851)
Give a man secure possession of a bleak rock, and he will turn it into a garden; give him nine years’ lease of a garden, and he will convert it into a desert.”
Travels in France (1792)
A garden is but Nature debauched.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
