The best place to be during a Sudbury summer.

Gardening season is full upon us so we thought we’d give you some quotes that all gardeners can relate to.

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.  The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful. ~ Abram L. Urban

After all the hard work…

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity. ~ Lindley Karstens

Our England is a garden, and such gardens are not made by singing: – “Oh, how beautiful!” and sitting in the shade. ~Rudyard Kipling

From an aunt, long ago:  “Death has come for me many times but finds me always in my lovely garden and leaves me there, I think, as an excuse to return.” ~ Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

Coffee.  Garden.  Coffee.  Does a good morning need anything else? ~ Betsy Cañas Garmon

Despite the gardener’s best intentions, Nature will improvise. ~ Michael P. Garafalo

One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides. ~ W.E. Johns

I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself.  And I find sufficient purpose for my day.  ~Robert Brault

If you’ve never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden. ~ Robert Braul

Gardening is a kind of disease. It infects you, you cannot escape it. When you go visiting, your eyes rove about the garden; you interrupt the serious cocktail drinking because of an irresistible impulse to get up and pull a weed.  ~Lewis Gannit

Gardening gives one back a sense of proportion about everything – except itself. ~May Sarton
