I used to think I was anything but a gardener. I'd even tell people that I had a "black" thumb, and that I could only grow weeds and children (which was not totally true, I could always grow geraniums and ivy too).  But you should see me now! I think when your troubled soul settles and love seeps into every dark corner of it, the love and happiness start overflowing and then all of the plants grow. 

I love playing in my gardens.
