A Teaching Moment

Art by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796 – 1875)

Plants – vegetables, fruit, flowers, bushes, trees – are worth every fatigue they might cause you while you tend to them.

Unfortunately, you can’t say the same of people. Hmm.

When you garden, you develop the traits and the manner that will improve all your relationships with people. Plants teach patience, respect, appreciation, receiving and giving in almost equal measure, peaceful conduct, responsiveness, usefulness, beauty. Plants provide health and delight and they take away stress.

Oh my, what do people teach plants? The answer is not quite as good….
