A garden is a place where, with careful tending, growth is measured and certain. There is hope in a garden–that spring will surely follow winter; that what was green and vibrant last year will burst forth in color, fragrance, and beauty once again; that the cares of today are just for a moment and will soon be forgotten. I need a garden in my life because I need rest and shelter and joy and hope. I need a garden in my life because I am human.
