Life lessons learned in the garden. I have found that over the years my garden has taught me many things – some cliche and other lessons are quite profound. Today while I was sitting on the patio staring out at one of the best late spring gardens I’ve ever had (think freaking hot summer everywhere else, thanks Phoenix), I came up with these 10 awesome life lessons learned in the garden.
Planning in life, planning in the garden – both pretty critical if you want to succeed. You have to know what your goals are so you make a plan to achieve them. In a garden you don’t just scatter seeds about willy nilly…not if you want to have any real results. You make some sort of plan out for where each seed will be planted, at what depth and how far apart…if we only gave our lives such detailed thought.
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature.
To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul. ~Alfred Austin
