We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~Aristotle
The raspberry bush in my garden is an heirloom variety that I was given by my Mom and it came from her garden. I can only imagine how many generations removed are these berries from the first berry from the first harvest. How much sweeter is the taste and how much plumper the fruit after many years of tender loving care and warm sunshine. Practice makes perfect I have always heard and it believe it now more than ever. Nothing is ever done well until it is done many times. Beginners luck is a fleeting glimpse of the reward you will encounter if you continue to hone a skill.
My garden is a living canvas of fruits, vegetables and flowers. My family is a living extension of all those who have come before me and all that will follow in my footsteps. I have a special connection with all of the inhabitants of my home and garden. Each of these individuals are cared for and lovingly inserted into the timeline of my life story. I learn from them and try to guide them as I am able. The connection between the life you nurture and the life you grow is a special one indeed and I encourage all of my family to take turns tending the garden with me as I did with my mother. ---------------------- Explore the attractive custom framing and matting options available on this page; all are competitively priced.
