I came across this quote and thought it so good and too good not to share. Makes you think doesn't it?
“A garden is the place millions of people go to touch the earth, to smell flowers – to use some of that fabled human brainpower in the cause of better participation with the natural processes in the place they call home. It serves as an art project, an organic produce market, a spiritual practice, a pharmacy. It offers ongoing lessons in ecology, biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology. Gardening imparts an organic perspective on the passage of time. It bestows on its practitioners a genuine sense of admiration for the plants, the soil, the sun, the water.
It is an excerpt from the book Why We Garden: Cultivating a Sense of Place 1994, by Jim Nollman
Hope your containers are behaving themselves as well as all intentions of all gardeners. I have just hired a sheepdog to chivvy mine into place, need to think about sorting out my ideas for my TO DO list with the gradual change of season in mind ... autumn is knocking on doors in some places just as spring waits impatiently to enter others.
I think it is worth making a pretty poster presentation of this somehow and displaying it up somewhere ... it's a container with a difference!
