“A garden is a public service and having one a public duty. It is a man’s contribution to the community.”
~ Richardson Wright, Truly Rural, 1922
I like this idea, don’t you? Times are much so different now than they were when they were written but there’s still much to be gained–and contributed–by tending a garden.
Yesterday I spent a bit of time with my granddaughter in the garden harvesting carrots and onions. She has an appreciation already for the joys a garden brings. I was impressed and delighted with her ability to recognize the different herbs–oregano, thyme, sage, rosemary, basil–by how they smelled and looked.
Looking forward to another grand day in the sunshine with my sweet Ladybug Girl.
