Trying to tame nature and be close to it is an innate part of our makeup, originating from a basic necessity to grow food.cottage-garden-x garden plot for Sunset photo by Thomas J. Story

You don't have to have 50 acres or large plots of dirt to experience the simple pleasures of taming the wild. Our California beach house had a tiny spot of a lawn.  All we ever used was an ancient push mower with rusty blades. I miss that old thing.

Some of the most intimate and personal gardens I have enjoyed are little more than cultivated postage stamps.

You don't have to have a place in the country to enjoy the peace and tranquility of an outdoor room.

The front steps, the roof, the back patio, wherever it may be; it's the first and last thing you see and the closest at hand." J.C.

My belief is that gardening really has no beginning and no end.  It's what's blooming at my elbow that always makes me smile.
