There are hearts to be found in quiet places… Here are a few I’ve photographed recently.
A lilac heart.
A sweet woodruff heart.
A yarrow heart.
I think passing love around
Is all we were born to do.
May your day be touched by love.
Everything is made out of Magic,
leaves and trees, flowers and birds,
badgers and foxes and squirrels and people.
So it must be all around us. In this garden–in all the places.
~Frances Hodgson Burnett, (1849 – 1924)
I love spring anywhere,
but if I could choose
I would always greet it in a garden.
~Ruth Stout, (1884 – 1980)
I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
~Lao Tzu, (604 BC – 531 BC)
I cannot do all the good that the world needs,
but the world needs all the good that I can do.
My garden shall be my poem.
~Amos Bronson Alcott, (1799 – 1888)
The whole secret of the study of nature
lies in learning how to use one’s eyes. . .
~George Sand, (1804 – 1876)
I reach and have reached the timeless moment,
the pure suspension within time,
only through love.
~May Sarton, (1912 – 1995)
The lesson I have thoroughly learnt,
and wish to pass on to others,
is to know the enduring happiness
that the love of a garden gives.
~Gertrude Jekyll, (1843 – 1932)
Blossoms from my garden.
The fact that I can plant a seed
and it becomes a flower,
share a bit of knowledge
and it becomes another’s,
smile at someone
and receive a smile in return,
are to me continual spiritual exercises.
~Leo Buscaglia, (1924 – 1998)
