“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul.” – Alfred Austin
This week the Wednesday Challenge on partner Susan and my site is the word Gardens.
Spring is the time of the year when blades of grass, perennial flowers and seedlings of all types entice us to try our hand at gardening.
Ever since Adam and Eve were ejected from the Garden of Eden, man has sought to recapture that place’s natural beauty and vitality.
Rock gardens and flower and vegetable gardens represent man’s modest experience to capture the magic and wonder of nature.
Folks with green thumbs sprout annually, and their skill at coaxing the very best nature offers is widespread.
This week we invite you to show us or tell us about your experiences in growing, nurturing and maintaining a handsome garden, yours or someone else’s.
Our challenges are as flexible as you’d like them to be, interpret at will and use them in a way that suits you – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
