Gardens have so much to teach us about living.
The need for fallow time.
The need to lay dormant until it is time to blossom.
That life is sometimes messy and untidy.
That sometimes disease or disaster visits us.
How patience and diligence will be rewarded.
How attentiveness is crucial to all we do.
The bittersweet nature of all things which bring joy then disappear.
That life is full of possibility and promise.
