    Kind hearts are the gardens,
    Kind thoughts are the roots,
    Kind words are the flowers,
    Kind deeds are the fruits.

    Take care of your garden
    And keep out the weeds,
    Fill it with sunshine
    Kind words and kind deeds.

    ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

      Perhaps this will explain why every garden I try to grow dies a withering, wilting death…

      But I love me some Longfellow! Thanks for posting such a bright and thoughtful eloquence.

      What a beautiful poem! Both of my grandmothers were excellent gardeners, literally and figuratively! They were an inspiration to me. This poem reminds me of them!

      I can’t grow a “real” garden (or keep plants alive, for that matter), but I can grow the kind of garden that counts. Thanks, AM (and a nod to Longfellow). Love the picture, too.

      I’ve not read that before. I love it, and it’s going in my “things I like” file.

      Beautiful…the poem and the photo.

      I also love Longfellow. We had a bassett hound named Sypsie and her daddy’s registered name was Henry Waddle Longfeller. Totally off the subject, but this just reminded me of that.
