One gardener's observations, discoveries and random thoughts whilst simultaneously worshipping and dallying in a Cape Cod garden. "A garden," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, "is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coatskirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg and his whole body to irresistable destruction."

The Best Remedy

MGT 001“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God.”

MGT 002“Because only then does one feel  that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.”

MGT 003
“As long as this exists and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.”

MGT 004“And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”


This morning’s guest blogger is Annelies Marie Frank (6/12/1929 – early 1945), excerpted from the diary she kept whilst hiding from the Nazis with her family during the German occupation of the Netherlands during World War II.
