Gardening Proverbs and a Favorite Mail Order Gardening Catalog
When it comes to gardening, nature has found a way to implore our souls with the essential nutrients found while exploring its elements.
The soil, the plant, the flower, and the warmth of the sun all invite the body to move into balance while we are gardening. We relieve stress; we ground our energy, and invite nature to heal our weariness. There is nothing like a day in the garden to put your attitude back on track when life has placed a challenge before you. Perhaps, this is why there are so many thought-provoking garden proverbs illustrating the miraculous effects of the garden.
One of my favorite things to do is create outdoor art for my yard. Little displays of thoughtful proverbs provide another type of visual reward. I place them among the flowers and plants so while strolling along the gardens edges thought provoking message provide a threat for those who really open their eyes to see. Here are a few of my favorite garden proverbs:
“You can bury a lot of troubles digging in the dirt.”
“The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.”
“God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done.”
“Nature always tends to act in the simplest way.”
“Despite the gardener’s best intentions, Nature will improvise.”

“A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom.”
“Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there.”

“Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere.”
