Gardeners, like everyone else, live second by second and minute by minute. What we see at one particular moment is then and there before us. But there is a second way of seeing. Seeing with the eye of memory, not the eye of our anatomy, calls up days and seasons past and years gone by.
~ Allen Lacy, The Gardener’s Eye, 1992
There ought to be gardens for all months in the year,
in which, severally, things of beauty may be then in season.
~ Sir Francis Bacon
