Gardeners will love this book! Full of beloved quotes and new ideas too, all about gardening. Who has Spring Fever? They will love this book.
“We gardeners are healthy, joyous, natural creatures. We are practical, patient, optimistic. We declare our optimism every year, every season with every act of planting.” — Carol Deppe author of the book The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-reliance in Uncertain Times.
Contemplating beauty or hearing an inspiring thought as you read aloud, is part of what makes this book of quotes and thoughts so grand! There are so many quotes in five chapters focusing on Joy in the Garden, Gifts, Beauty, Garden Wit and the changing seasons. You’ll love it and it is perfect for EARTH DAY, or if you are a one of the people (like me) that insists on EARTH YEAR… you will love it. I have found a favorite quote or a new quote on every page. Here are a few of the hundreds of quotes (88 pages) in this book:
There is peace in the garden. Peace and results. — Ruth Stout
The earth is absolutely honest; it gives back what is put into it plus interest on the time, money and effort invested. Treat soil handsomely and it will give you a rich return. — Patience Strong
Anything which grows is always more beautiful to look at than anything which is built. — Lin Yu Tang.
