Parables Of The Garden

~Living In The Moment~

~Wishing for roses

Prepare, tend and prune them
but don't sit and wish longingly
for June's roses and Delphiniums
while May, in all her glory,
is standing right before you.

To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle.
~ George Orwell~

The real voyage of discovery consists of not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
~ Marcel Proust~

If not ignored, nature will cultivate in the gardener a sense of well-being and peace. The gardener may find deeper meaning in life by paying attention to the parables of the garden. Nature teaches quiet lessons to the gardener who chooses to live within the paradigm of the garden.
