"Working in the soil and watching things grow is peaceful and psychologically cleansing. I call it my "dirt therapy."

"I've been gardening since I was a boy. Maybe that means I need a lot of therapy."                          shadegarden              

"I'm not afraid to experiment with new things-even if success is a crap shoot.

My philosophy is that every garden has some plants that are thriving...when by all logic they should be dead."

"And on the flip side, every garden has some plants that are just not happy when they should be flourishing. There is always something new to learn."

"Gardening is a process, and gardening is never "done".
