Now that I have passed my the sixtieth year and my ministry as Canon Theologian prevents me from writing on matters of the church as I did previously, I thought to turn to my love of gardening.
We purchased our home in 2013 with nothing but an empty back plot of weeds and mature trees. I plan to transform it into an ornamental paradise garden for God’s glory and our pleasure. The blog is its story as I learn and grow with the garden.
This quote of Samuel Rutherford is never far from my thoughts:
Put the beauty of ten thousand thousand worlds of paradises, like the Garden of Eden in one; put all trees, flowers, all smells, all colours, all tastes, all joys, all loveliness, all sweetness in one. O what a fair and excellent thing would that be? And yet it would be less to that fair and dearest well-beloved Christ than one drop of rain to the whole seas, rivers, lakes, and fountains of ten thousand earths.”
