my feelings exactly

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

Luis Barragan

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.

— May Sarton

The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.

— Gertrude Jekyll
