I'm not much of a gardener, really. I don't particularly like being outside in the heat, I don't like stooping and digging and I don't like getting dirty. But I do have houseplants and I manage to plant some begonias in front of my little house every spring. So I really agree with the following:
Connection with gardens, even small ones, even potted plants, can become windows to the inner life. The simple act of stopping and looking at the beauty around us can be prayer.
