Invincible summer

Posted on June 26, 2013


in-the-midst-of-summerI received an email yesterday from a reader. It read:

All your Half agony/Half hope posts have made me sad in varying degrees, but the gardening post made me angry – it pained me to read that you lost your heart for gardening! I’m so happy you’re back with it again. I scoured the net for videos of English gardens to inspire you, but they all seemed to come with such cheesy music, so I tried elsewhere and eventually found something that said what I wanted.

“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.”

Don’t let anyone squish your inner summer!

What a kind letter and wonderful quote. Thank you, dear reader. Yes, knowing DK killed my spirit for many things, but I and my garden are like the Phoenix. My garden finally grows again as does my internal, invincible summer.
