Dorothy Frances Gurney wrote a poem with the lines
"The kiss of sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth."
I often think about these words when I'm gardening. For many of us they ring true. We do feel closer to God in the garden than anywhere else on earth. I have a few theories about this, and as a keen gardener and a Christian I'm going to use this blog to explore them .
