The garden on my little 10×20 concrete patio is my gift to Nature. I do whatever I am asked and Nature gets to express here in wonderous ways.
That puts me in a new relationship with Nature – one I’m just beginning to grow into. But I like being the giver. I like being able to give something to Nature in return for all I receive.
And what a blessing that I get to be in the gift – to enjoy the gift – to learn from the gift – to share the gift.
Nature is really something. I read a quote recently, I believe from St. Thomas Aquinas, that there are only two volumes to understanding: the first Volume is the Bible; the second volume is Nature.
