LOVE. Love for creation. Love for plants. Love for people.
Gardening, horticulture, plant sciences, plant pathology. Check out my profile. Now at the age of 74+ I am embarking upon a study of plant pathology. For many. Looking at creation or the world around us, truly delights us. However unlike a famous painting say? looking at it gives so much pleasure, delight and satisfaction. Nevertheless, that same picture, when you look at it ten years on. Why, yes you exclaim. I know every brushstroke of the work. Yes! it wa sthe same last year as it is this year and will remain throughout the comining years, So branching out. For the enquiring mind. More needs to be known. So whatever our status might be. We venture forth. We start to investgate, well where did this plant come from? whhy will it only grow in this soil? and many more questions. My friend. As so with other subjects. You olny get out of it......what you put into it. For instance. Many are confused regarding the latin terms etc. OK. Whenyou sow seeds of Forget-me-nots. Add the botanical name. Myosotis. Then when pricking out simply label up as Myosotis. Believe me everything falls into place.
So forums such as this. Men and women of similar likes etc come together. Thankfully, none of us LORD it over anyone else. Neither do we criticise a fellows methods. In the criminal world, there is a saying. Honour amongst theives. In the gardening world. Perhaps, honour, respect, and appreciation..
My friend. enjoy your garden. Apprceiate the wonders of creation. Hopefully it will strengthen your bond with the Grand Creator.
