Sunday Citar...Why I Garden...

Pin It

Why I Garden...


The best place to seek God is in a garden.  You can dig for him there.  ~George Bernard Shaw, The Adventures of the Black Girl in Her Search for God, 1932

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.  ~Mirabel Osler

The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.  ~Hanna Rion



Why Gardening has become an obsession... 


Weather means more when you have a garden.  There's nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans.  ~Marcelene Cox

Gardening is a kind of disease.  It infects you, you cannot escape it.  When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible impulse to get up and pull a weed.  ~Lewis Gannit













Why I think the obsession might be one of the best you could have... 


Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination.  ~Mrs. C.W. Earle, Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden, 1897 (Thanks, Jessica)

Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.  ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

As a gardener, I'm among those who believe that much of the evidence of God's existence has been planted.  ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com




why I posted all of these photos of dew...


Nothing can beat the smell of dew and flowers and the odor that comes out of the earth when the sun goes down.
Ethel Waters  

Joy descends gently upon us like the evening dew, and does not patter down like a hailstorm.
Jean Paul

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
Rabindranath Tagore



and finally...
 
Coffee.  Garden.  Coffee.  Does a good morning need anything else?  ~Betsy CaƱas Garmon, www.wildthymecreative.com 


I'm sorry I can't stop at one...and neither can you!  check out more quotes from bloggers at Sunday Citar on the lovely Fresh Mommy's site!

I agree with you. When you can't find God, it is usually because He is in your garden and you are not.
