peace ...

A beautiful quote from AND I SHALL HAVE SOME PEACE THERE by Margaret Roach
It is no wonder so much of gardening is done on one’s knees; this practice of horticulture is a wildly humbling way to pass one’s days on earth. Even the root of the word humility comes from the soil (from the Latin humus, for earth or ground), and a good soil is rich in the partially decayed plant and animal material called humus.

Remember tiny red peony shoots from this post?  Look how tall they've grown
* caragana, elderberry, and peonies
