15 random thoughts on gardening

My soul and mind shall always be in the garden, no matter what else is going on.

You can take the gardener out of the garden, but you can't take the garden out of the gardener.

Gardeners are like boomerangs.  Just try to throw us out of our  gardens. Somehow, we'll find our way back.

You can tell how happy gardeners are by how dirty their hands are.  The dirtier their hands are with the dirt of their own gardens, the happier they are.

Sometimes, the best part of gardening is breathing outside air.

When it comes to life's problems, if you apply a little gardening knowledge to them, you can generally figure them out.

How do you find time for gardening? If you find your passion, you will find the time.

If you commit to lifelong gardening, you've committed to lifelong learning.

Beauty is reason enough in a garden.

I can describe my ideal gardening budget in three words:  whatever it takes.

I do not believe in gardening with moderation.

If every day you think of gardening... well, that's good, isn't it?

"Finished" and "garden" should never been used together in a sentence.

Seeds are like dreams, some come true and some don’t. We always want to have dreams, and we always want to have seeds, too.

Garden it forward.

Lovely blog! Agreed 100%, I also do not believe in "gardening with moderation," Is that even a thing? You can never do enough or have enough plants.

I could have written this post. I totally agree with every word! I think I'm obsessed with gardening and I think that's a good thing. If I'm sad or stressed, I head for the garden as it soothes and relaxes me regardless of the task. I just LOVE gardening!
