Wednesday - An Inhabited Garden


"The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers, and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us and though distant, is close to us in spirit - this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden."

~ Johann VonGoethe

I love the quote and the picture. The quote speaks for me for sure.
You'll have to go over and visit Amy's blog and see the quote from Mother Teresa she left for me today. Hope you've had a good day my friend.

Robbin, I thought of you when I posted this quote.

I did see Amy's blog today. That quote certainly fits your situation right now.

hugs,
Aisling

I've been thinking of you, hope all is well. xoxoxo

Aisling said...

Rapunzel, Thank you. Things are well. The busy days of the school year are giving way to busy days of yard and garden work, and an effort to put my house back in order before the next school year begins. I'll write you a chatty email soon.

hugs,
Aisling

ohhh, to grow a peony!!! I am afraid we are not cold enough here although I know a man who has good luck with the tree peony and seeing this makes me want to give it a go....so lovely, thank you for sharing it!

Linda, Ah, but look at the roses you can grow in your climate! The tree peony sounds like a lovely opportunity to experiment. I've seen those here too and they are really lovely plants. Thanks for visiting!
