Inspiring Garden Quotes
Let’s have an Inspirational Garden Quotes article. Not preachy or churchy, but something that touches the heart or soul. Or both ! We keep the theme about Earth, herbs, flowers, gardening and invite our readers to come and leave a favorite short poem or verse. This would be ongoing. I’ll start it off with these two favorites of mine ! Our readers are welcome to leave their own favorite poem, verse or saying. Here are my two to begin with:
The season comes when, from her three month’s trance,
The Earth awakens: already deep in her heart
Begins to stir, and send its life abroad.
~ Thomas Buchanan Read [ 1822-72 ]
For glad spring has begun,
And the ardent Sun
The Earth, long time so bleak,
Turns a frost bitten cheek.
~ Celia Thaxter [ 1835- 94 ]
April Brings the Primrose sweet
Scatters daisies at our feet
~ Sara Coleridge [ 1802- 52 ]
Buds are bursting on the hedges
Leaves are creeping up the lane
Everywhere the sap is stirring
Love awakens to life again
~ John Dennis [ 1658-1734 ]
Here’s my quote for today:
We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest.

Here’s another favorite of mine:
We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars, which has given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun that has looked upon the earth with a beneficial eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness, who directs all things
For the good of her children.
