Photography: Once Pristine……

Once a beautiful, Victorian garden on a remote dairy farm in the 1870’s, the property has been tended to by volunteers over the years. It still is inviting, even as the structures attempt to hold on in their ‘historic’ image without too much tinkering/patching.

Photography: What Was…What Is

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.”   Rudyard Kipling

“God made a beauteous garden
With lovely flowers strown,
But one straight, narrow pathway
That was not overgrown.
And to this beauteous garden
He brought mankind to live,
And said “To you, my children,
These lovely flowers I give.
Prune ye my vines and fig trees,
With care my flowers tend,
But keep the pathway open
Your home is at the end.”

God’s Garden ~ Robert Frost 

Garden3 SB

“I haven’t much time to be fond of anything … but when I have a moment’s fondness to bestow, most times … the roses get it. I began my life among them in my father’s nursery garden, and I shall end my life among them, if I can. Yes. One of these days (please God) I shall retire from catching thieves, and try my hand at growing roses.” Wilkie Collins, Moonstone

“Long experience has taught me that people who do not like geraniums have something morally unsound about them. Sooner or later you will find them out; you will discover that they drink, or steal books, or speak sharply to cats. Never trust a man or a woman who is not passionately devoted to geraniums.”

Beverly Nichols

“Why do we keep believing that we can control nature, even as it banishes us repeatedly from our homes in search of new fertile ground?” Maria Rodale

“Gardens are made of darkness and light entwined.” 
F.T. McKinstry, Crowharrow
