Alfred Austin – Quote

‎Alfred Austin was an old school poet with a deep love and admiration for nature. His words about gardening ignite my spirit and make me want to roll around in the dirt!

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. Share the botanical bliss of gardeners through the ages, who have cultivated philosophies to apply to their own – and our own – lives: Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.” Alfred Austin
