This is what my garden looks like now. It gives me much happiness...and peace. On a busy day, I pine for time to spend downstairs. I feel prayer can only happen among plants and trees, birds and bees...amidst nature, not anywhere else.
As says T.E. Brown:
A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!
The veriest school
Of peace; and yet the fool
Contends that God is not---
Not God! in gardens! when the eve is cool?
Nay, but I have a sign:
'Tis very sure God walks in mine.
I will forever be grateful for this opportunity to convert this little patch of land to green.
