Sweet Summer...

I love summer time!!!

This Dahlia grew in my front yard.

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. ~Russel Baker
That beautiful season the Summer! Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood. - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic,always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.- Vita Sackville-West, 1892 - 1962
I have found, through years of practice, that people garden in order to make something grow; to interact with nature; to share, to find sanctuary, to heal, to honor the earth, to leave a mark. Through gardening, we feel whole as we make our personal work of art upon our land.- Julie Moir Messervy, The Inward Garden, 1995, p.19

When gardeners garden, it is not just plants that grow, but the gardeners themselves. - Ken Druse
