Take Time To Renew Your Spirit


For Father’s Day, here is some gardening wisdom, in honour of my own father and my children’s father and life partner, both talented gardeners who love to visit and revisit their garden “kingdoms”:

I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation.  It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse
