nearer to thee

As I work in the garden these days, to keep things watered and weeded and generally tended to, one phrase from this poem keeps running through my mind:

"One is nearer God's heart in a garden,
than anywhere else on earth."

He's got it all going on this week out there.


A strong comeback from the cucumber plant decimated by the deer.


Is there anything to rival the fecundity of a well-picked squash plant?

... and simple grace and beauty.

Certain visitors are welcome to enjoy the garden's bounty with me.

The blessings of a garden extend well beyond the dinner plate.
