Gardening with Sir Francis

“God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed it is the purest of human pleasures.”

“There ought to be gardens for all the months in the year; in which severally things of beauty may be then in season.”

“The green hath two pleasures: green grass kept finely shorn; the other a stately hedge which is to enclose the garden.”

“nothing to the true pleasure of a garden. ”

      -Francis Bacon  -The Essays

As I lift each stone and place it gently where it longs to be I smile to the Angels of the Garden. Just knowing that the vision will come through and joy will delight in my efforts of planting a simple garden.
