All things by immortal power
Near or far
Hiddenly
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling a star.
Francis Thompson
A sensitive plant in a garden grew,
And the young winds fed it with silver dew,
And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light,
and closed them beneath the kisses of night.
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Bette Midler on gardening: My whole life had been spent waiting for an epiphany, a manifestation of God's presence, the kind of transcendent, magical experience that lets you see your place in the big picture. And that is what I had with my first compost heap.

I have never had so many good ideas day after day as when I worked in the garden.
John Erskine
I never had any other desire so strong,
and so like to covetousness,
as that one which I have had always,
that I might be master at last
of a small house and a large Garden.
Abraham Cowley, The Garden, 1666
Just living is not enough... One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson
One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides. W.E. Johns
AND any of you can come help me in the Devic Garden anytime - just be willing to meditate sometimes if the Devas ask you to, and also to ask each plant where it wants to be planted; and if you're weeding, hold the consciousness of "Thank you for your energy gift [you're going to make great compost]" and "please release." Most plants will easily release their roots from the soil when thought-to in this way. If they hold on, then they may have a message for you and you need to tune-in at a deeper level. Each person deserves at least as much respect as the weeds I talk to. Carolion
Each morning now,
the sun's at the window a few moments earlier -
as if to say, "Today? Will you spend the day with me today?"
Go to the garden for an hour a week!

If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it,
it's your world for the moment.
