Why do I garden?

I garden to take time off from a world where everything moves too fast; I garden to learn more about the earth I’m standing on.

This is for the Blotanical competition :) If I get one of the books, it's going to my mum in Belgium as it wouldn't be much use to me here in Malaysia...

I totally agree Julian. Living in a large metropolis is really a rat race I'm sure glad I have my garden to help me unwind at the end of the day!!!

i like to garden because i love the smell of earth. and it reminds me what is real. and that miracles grow from what is real.

Overdoing the poetic licence perhaps ;)
