The Gift of a Garden
A reflective and uplifting account by Alice Taylor of her love of nature and gardening.
Welcome to Alice Taylor's garden:'Just inside the gate, hand-painted on a rickety piece of timber, is a little sign: Miracles only grow where you plant them.
I saw it in a garden centre and could not resist it. This garden is full of my lack of resistance. I have no in-depth gardening knowledge and I work on impulse. 'My gardening expertise, acquired through trial and error, is nurtured by the unbelievable pleasure that I have discovered in simply digging the earth.
Where does that satisfaction come from? Maybe buried deep in each of us is the secret need to cultivate the soil. Digging the earth breathes life back into us.'
