"A garden is not a gentle hobby for the elderly, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and once it has done so he will have to accept that his life is going to be radically changed." - May Sarton

My late summer garden looks like this:
I hope you are all enjoying your summer!
