Monet's Garden

My mother used to have a painted iron trivet which read:

One is nearer God's heart in a garden
than anywhere else on earth.

Your Head Trucker has no green thumb, unfortunately, but sometimes wishes he did.  What better refuge is there from the strife and ugliness of the world than a lovely garden in full bloom?  Here we can spend a few moments luxuriating in the painter's famous garden at Giverny - a little bit of heaven, it seems to me.

We had the same little verse on a plaque in our garden.

I've sometimes seen it in gardens too.
