My Garden in the Grove

The Grand Passion


The Gardener, by Georges Seurat, 1884…

MAKING A GARDEN is not a gentle hobby for the elderly, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole, and once it has done so he will have to accept that his life is going to be radically changed.

~May Sarton, from Plant Dreaming Deep
