Default Thoughts on gardening


Just wanted to share this little poem I like. Just finished the book.

The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the bird for mirth,
One is nearer to God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth

- From the obituary of Joseph Edwin "Jackapple Joe" Cox
- From the novel Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris

See where 'being closer to god's heart' got him ?

Now he IS the garden !

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, baby.
