“The hope in a gardener’s heart is strengthened every year by the experience of watching green settle in a filmy veil over bare branches, watching a bare, raked plot of ground suddenly explode with busy, purposeful growth.

Hope is nurtured every time a pruned-back bush sends forth invigorated shoots, every time a languishing bush flourishes in a new location . . . . Hope is nurtured just by being in the company of trees and plants and flowers, by witnessing the relentless strength and energy of growing things.”

~ Emilie Barnes (Contemporary gardener and author in Time Began in a Garden)

Wishing you hope and joy in the experience of green, growing things during this beautiful season of the year!
