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
Nothing comes for free. It may seem so at times, but the truth is, the things worthwhile come out of effort expended and our devotion to excellence. It is easy to throw a plant into the ground, but not so easy for it to flourish. It takes good soil, careful watering and feeding, to make it flourish as it should.
Go 100%. People notice if you don’t. So does a plant. In the gardens you admire 100% is what it takes. In the life you want, it is no different.
What are your dreams? Did you think they would happen just because you had them? They happen because you not only want them, but you are willing to make them a reality with sweat and conviction.
Go the extra mile. Make yourself known. A garden will tell you that. Make compost. Carry the bag of top soil to the rose that seeks it. Sprinkle a little fertilizer. Never forget that care and consideration are what makes a garden and, yes, a life grow.
