A Poem for the Garden

My Garden by Thomas E. Brown

Written sometime in the  1800's, this poem transcends the passing of time and feels quite at home in my 2015 garden. I found the poem years ago, loved it, and copied it by hand into a little journal where I keep quotes that I like. Simple, yet profound, it always makes me smile. I share it with you today along with recent photos from the garden and hope that you like it too. 

Quick Mix Strawberry Shortcake for Two
