    Yes the garden is a lovely place – at the moment we have snow peas plants producing food for us, with tiny new snow pea plants growing, and soon enough I expect we’ll have all of the snow peas we need for ourselves, I love snow peas! My favourite vegetable, I think.

    When I sit out in the garden, my mind calms down, and wonderful thoughts occur at times. Serenity rules in my garden time, until the dogs or perhaps the air force have other ideas! But even these things can’t take away from the lovely things the garden does for my head and my body, slowly calming down, with stress leaving my body.

    I have an almost spiritual feeling for the garden, and for Nature in general, I love it so much. I feel sorry for people who don’t have a garden to love. Do you love the garden too?

    I love gardens too, Carolyn! Here’s a nice quote for you:

    • Oh lovely! I smelled one of the lovely red roses growing in our garden this morning – beautiful old style full on rose scent. And the colours of the geranium cuttings that are just starting to really get going and budding up, or already flowering. The textures, soft rose petals, grainy soil and so on, and of course the hound out there with my who wants a pat. The cheeping and chirping of the birds, and the yummy snow pea I picked this morning. And then add in the sense of well being the garden gives to a person, delightful!

        I honestly don’t know how I could survive without access to gardens, either my own or others! Here are two more quotes for you:

        It is a golden maxim to cultivate the garden for the nose, and the eyes will take care of themselves. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

        I know that if odour were visible, as colour is,
        I’d see the summer garden in rainbow clouds.
        ~Robert Bridges, “Testament of Beauty”
