Do it with your own hands

Pretend like there is a lovely picture right here. It is a big garden with flowers and vegetables. In the background you can see a small grove of fruit trees and bushes. We might be using our imagination a lot if I can't figure out how to get my pictures to upload here. Of course at the rate I'm blogging I might be the only one using my imagination on this blog anymore. LOL

Just wanted to share a quote about gardens with you having just come in from the cool beautiful morning tending my little garden.

When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love your quote. My husband and I are finding such delight in our work! He has been learning to use an axe and he is actually enjoying his farming more than his daytime job! Never thought I would hear him say that! Can't wait to see a picture!
