For the past few Thursdays I have been presenting different perspectives to answering the question “What is a Garden?” Here are yet two more ways of looking at a garden. These are quotes from the larger article in my eBook, Guess What’s in My Garden!
A garden is a genealogical place where we see history taking place as we watch plants grow over time. A garden is a place to plant a tree to shade future generations. A garden is a place where pass-along plants that were gifts remind us of past and present family and friends.
A garden is a churchyard in which we pray, meditate, and get married. A garden is a place where we have our ashes scattered.
Blossoms of Leucojum aestivum, bulbs that my grandmother got from her grandmother.
