In planning my herbs, veggies, & flowers early this spring, I found a proverb that struck me:
Here are spinach and strawberries in my garden, not theirs. Theirs would not be riddled with grass like this.
It wasn’t really a dead elephant like the grown-ups told us, I remember noticing one day at the ripe old age of maybe six. But danged if it didn’t look like one! This was a turning point. The beginning of my personal enlightenment.
Oh, and if you have your own gardening Grandparents, give them some hugs asap.
still his Eden keeps,
Perennial pleasures plants,
and wholesome harvest reaps.”
