What is a Garden? (2)

For several weeks on Thursday I will be posting quotations from my eBook Guess What’s in My Garden! that provide different views on the question: What is a Garden?

This week I add two more perspectives for you to think about.

A garden is a gathering place. It’s a place where kids run, play, kick, throw, catch, hide, seek, laugh, yell, somersault, and do hand stands. It’s a place where adults meet, stroll, relax, read, bond, share, and learn


A garden is a construction site for beds, walls, benches, paths, sculpture, patios, steps, fences, trellises, and arbors.


What is a garden to you?

Look for another perspective next Thursday.

    What a great idea for getting through the dark days of winter.
    My garden is a safe refuge away from technology and a return to the sounds of nature and the rhythms of the natural day.
