GARDEN BLOGGERS' MUSE DAY



The Gardener
by Moi
Acrylic on Canvas


More eloquent than the art of poets or musicians are the actions of millions of ordinary mortals who immerse themselves more and more in their gardens for the only peace they know. Only in their gardens are they taken out of themselves, beyond themselves, above themselves, in their earthly paradise.

-Lucinda Lambton
Good riddance March, Welcome April !

  5. I like your April 1 muse. The garden can definitely be a place where we are taken out, beyond and above ourselves. And I also rid the month of March a good riddance! This is my first GBMD and I look forward to all the good reading.

  14. Love the painting but especially love the Lucinda Lambton quote. How true. Guess I've officially 'joined' something here as I have just posted my first poem. Yes, good riddance to March.

  15. Thank you all for joining the poetry circle. I tried to leave comments on everyone's blog but wasn't able to on some. I don't know if that's due to the virus worry or not.

  19. I always admire those with the patience and ability to cultivate a garden. I have managed to keep 1 plant alive for nearly 8 months now and it is my pride enjoy. Perhaps one day I will try for 2.

  21. Dear Carolyn, Thank you so much for identifying the author of my quote--none other than Abraham Lincoln. Wow, I didn't know that--I had read it somewhere but had no reference of where it originated from. I have added it to the post and have given you credit for identifying it:-)
