Images of Mother's Garden

"The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the bird for mirth;
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth."

Wow. Love the butterfly. My son would be right in the middle of that with his hands in the birdbath. :)

The quote (or poem) you selected is so near the truth. When I was going through a very hard time, I started a vegetable garden.

When I worked in my garden, I could think, I could talk to God and it was so therapeutic to watch things grow from seedlings to mature plants heavy with growth.

My garden flourished and so did my soul!
