“I go out there several times a day. The wonderful thing about gardening is that you go out there to do one thing and then you see something else and then something else and then you thought you would be out there for five minutes, and you end up being out there for 35 minutes. And it all has been wonderfully joyful. For me gardening is not work I do not have to think, I know what to do.”
