The garden is at once both a place and a state of mind. It is also the thing that the gardener does. And from it comes both food and beauty – the two mainstays of the human condition. For without food our bodies perish – and without beauty, likewise do our souls. The garden is then the wellspring of our existence in the most compelling of ways. Within its confines of delight we may find nourishment and succour. And from it we may derive the full sustenance and texture of living.
