July's Nibblefest Theme: "GARDEN"




"The glory of gardening: 
hands in the dirt, 
head in the sun, 
heart with nature. 
To nurture a garden 
is to feed not just on the body, 
but the soul."

~Alfred Austin

I know that if odor were visible, 
as color is, 
I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds."

"If you have a garden and a library, 
you have everything you need."
~Marcus Tullius Cicero

"Gardens are not made by singing 
'Oh, how beautiful,' 
and sitting in the shade."
 
~Rudyard Kipling

"No occupation is so delightful to me 
as the culture of the earth, 
and no culture comparable to that of the garden."

 ~Thomas Jefferson

and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get."

"A garden is a grand teacher. 
It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; 
it teaches industry and thrift; 
above all it teaches entire trust." 

~Gertrude Jekyll

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back 
into the slow circles of nature, is a help. 
Gardening is an instrument of grace." 

~May Sarton



Art by Nibblefest artist, Kim Selig



"A garden must combine the poetic 
and the mysterious 
with a feeling of serenity and joy." 

~Luis Barragan


Art by Nibblefest artist, Dianne Curtis




Show me your garden 
and I shall tell you what you are.

~Alfred Austin




Art by Nibblefest artist, Penny Stewart




"A garden requires patient labor and attention. 
Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions 
or to fulfill good intentions. 
They thrive because someone expended effort on them." 

~Liberty Hyde Bailey
