Have you ever heard the saying "The Best Fertilizer is the Gardener's Shadow?"
It is not the weed control, the best lawn sprinkler or the lawn irrigation but the gardener's shadow.
"Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination."
~Mrs. C.W. Earle, Pot-Pourri from a Surrey Garden, 1897
What is it about a garden that effects us so much?
Someone once said "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." This is such a true example of how gardening can make someone feel.
A garden flourishes when the gardener visits it regularly to administer his tender loving care.
The ending quote about gardening is "If you are not prepared to make time in your schedule for your lawn than don't begin."
When was the last time you got dirty in your yard and gardened?
