WHEN I GO INTO THE GARDEN...

“When I go into the garden with a spade and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all the time in letting others do that for me what I should have done with my own hands.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

  6. Those who love gardening feel that way those who do not love gardening do not feel that way and I do not love the gardening at all and digging with one of those little Spades makes me crazy but I am glad that others love to do it because I do love Gardens and plants
