my garden in May

A garden is a grand teacher.
It teaches patience and careful watchfulness;
it teaches industry and thrift;
above all it teaches entire trust. 
by Gertrude Jekyll

I enjoy painting, 
cutting the lawn and 
working in the garden when I have time. 
That's therapy for me. I enjoy working with my hands. 
by Billy Williams

Every time I imagine a garden in an architectural setting,
it turns into a magical place. I think of gardens I have seen,
that I believe I have seen, that I long to see,
surrounded by simple walls, columns, arcades or the facades of buildings - 
sheltered places of great intimacy where I want to stay for a long time. 
by Peter Zumthor

I love things that are indescribable,
like the taste of an avocado 
or the smell of a gardenia. 
by Barbra Streisand
