We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest.
Be happy in your work.
— Japanese Colonel Saito in Bridge On The River Kwai
If you aren’t happy working in the garden, then where? I have found great comfort in gardening over the years for stress relief, to ease the pain in the loss of a loved one, to pass the hours of boredom from isolation, and it is a joy to see the beauty of my work.
