by Alfred Austin

A garden that you make yourself
becomes associated with your personal history
and that of your friends,
interwoven with your tastes,
preferences,
and character,
and constitutes a sort of unwritten,
but withal manifest,
autobiography.
Show me your garden,
provided it be your own,
and I will tell you what you are like. 


As featured on
The Daily Gardener podcast:

Words inspired by the garden are the sweetest, most beautiful words of all.
