For some of us, gardening is not all fun and games. It can be difficult to constantly find the energy to keep and maintain a garden, not to mention plan out your strategy for the year. Sticking to the trends, or not growing tired of your own garden can for some be a constant battle. However, there are enormous benefits of gardening, mentally and physically. If you need a pick me up, just take a look at one of these quotes.
Francis Bacon –
God Almighty first planted a garden. And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.
