would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."
"I think the true gardener
is a lover of his flowers,
not a critic of them.
I think the true gardener
is the reverent servant of Nature,
not her truculent, wife-beating master.
I think the true gardener,
the older he grows,
should more and more develop
a humble, grateful and uncertain spirit."
~Reginald Farrer, In a Yorkshire Garden, 1909
