May's Garden

Gardens are not made by singing 'Oh, how beautiful,' and sitting in the shade.

Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.

In search of my mother's garden, I found my own.

It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.

Gardening is how I relax. It's another form of creating and playing with colors.

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.

When I go into the garden, I forget everything. It's uncomplicated in my world of gardening. It's trial and error, really. If something doesn't work, it comes out, and you start all over again.

A garden must combine the poetic and he mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.

Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
