Then again, if the plant is slow growing, and you are getting older, you may want to start with a larger plant. I find myself buying larger plants each year.Billy Cannon Growing Plants Sayings By Billy Cannon: Then again, if the plant is slow growing, and you are getting older, you may
I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter any more, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me

Nicholas Sparks Growing Plants Sayings By Nicholas Sparks: I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not
Movement turns dead dogs into maggots and daisies, and flour butter sugar an egg and a tablespoon of milk into Abernethy biscuits, and spermatozoa and ovaries into fishy little plants growing babyward if we take no care to stop them.Alasdair Gray Growing Plants Sayings By Alasdair Gray: Movement turns dead dogs into maggots and daisies, and flour butter sugar an egg and
There, on the far side of of the Atlantic, would be Maine, but despite the shared ocean, her island and this one were worlds apart. Where Inishmaan was gray and brown, its fragile man-made soil supporting only the hardiest of low-growing plants, the fertile Quinnipeague invited tall pines in droves, not to mention vegetables, flowers, and improbable, irrepressible herbs. Lifting her head, eyes closed now, she breathed in the damp Irish air and the bit of wood smoke that drifted on the cold ocean wind. Quinnipeague smelled of wood smoke, too, since early mornings there could be chilly, even in summer. But the wood smoke would clear by noon, giving way to the smell of lavender, balsam, and grass. If the winds were from the west, there would be fry smells from the Chowder House; if from the south, the earthiness of the clam flats; if from the northeast, the purity of sweet salt air.Barbara Delinsky Growing Plants Sayings By Barbara Delinsky: There, on the far side of of the Atlantic, would be Maine, but despite the
Many different thoughts rise up in the darkness - like those gossamer plants that grow in the lake, oddly bewitching and pretty as they bob and sway; but enticing and sinister, they exert a dark pull as long as they're growing in the living, trickling mire. ANd yet as long as they're nothing but slimey brown clumps when the children pull them in to the boat. So many strange thoughts, both terrifying and enticing, grow in the night.Sigrid Undset Growing Plants Sayings By Sigrid Undset: Many different thoughts rise up in the darkness - like those gossamer plants that grow
there has been a dramatic decrease in birth and survival rates of caribou calves. It seems that rising temperatures have changed the growing patterns of plants that are the source of critical energy for caribou calves, as well as for their mothers during reproduction and lactation.Naomi Klein Growing Plants Sayings By Naomi Klein: there has been a dramatic decrease in birth and survival rates of caribou calves. It
described my tomatoes and growing process to Alan (the tomato guru). He thought I might be watering my plants too much. When I wailed, "How can anyone tell what the right amount is?" He said, "You let them suffer. Hold off on the water until they just start to wilt - and then you save them. Suffer and save.Spring Warren Growing Plants Sayings By Spring Warren: described my tomatoes and growing process to Alan (the tomato guru). He thought I might
The pleasure of eating should be an extensive pleasure, not that of the mere gourmet. People who know the garden in which their vegetables have grown and know that the garden is healthy will remember the beauty of the growing plants, perhaps in the dewy first light of morning when gardens are at their best. Such a memory involves itself with the food and is one of the pleasures of eating. (pg. 326, The Pleasures of Eating)Wendell Berry Growing Plants Sayings By Wendell Berry: The pleasure of eating should be an extensive pleasure, not that of the mere gourmet.
Just as the heart becomes carefree in a place of green, growing plants, goodwill and kindness are born when our souls enter happiness.Rumi Growing Plants Sayings By Rumi: Just as the heart becomes carefree in a place of green, growing plants, goodwill and
I think you grow wherever God plants you. I hope I'm growing as a person of faith, as a Christian. That should be our number one objective this journey of life. That all starts with a personal intimate relationship with Christ and then being in prayer every single day about all of those things - being tenacious about it.J. C. Watts Growing Plants Sayings By J. C. Watts: I think you grow wherever God plants you. I hope I'm growing as a person
My first lessons were to respect all life, protect Mother Earth, and nurture the plants and herbs. I look whenever I go home to the Reservation to see if comfrey, fennel, catnip, rosemary, and many of the plants that we care for are still growing in the backyard. Sure enough, they are always there, reminding me that life does go on.J.T. Garrett Growing Plants Sayings By J.T. Garrett: My first lessons were to respect all life, protect Mother Earth, and nurture the plants
Water fell from the sky and dripped from the branches, streaming down the gully of the trail. I walked beneath the enormous trees, the forest canopy high above me, the bushes and low-growing plants that edged the trail soaking me as I brushed past. Wet and miserable as it was, the forest was magical - Gothic in its green grandiosity, both luminous and dark, so lavish in its fecundity that it looked surreal, as if I were walking through a fairy tale rather than the actual world.Cheryl Strayed Growing Plants Sayings By Cheryl Strayed: Water fell from the sky and dripped from the branches, streaming down the gully of
Because I am really interested in gardening, I do really interesting plants, not even always flowers. And because I have grown them, I really know them like friends. I paint everything from exotic orchids to rosehips growing wild in a hedge. They just have to speak to me.Emma Tennant Growing Plants Sayings By Emma Tennant: Because I am really interested in gardening, I do really interesting plants, not even always
Miguel hated the corn, said the plants seemed . . . alive. When Finn reminded him that, duh, of course the corn was alive, all plants were alive, Miguel replied that the corn sounded alive alive. As if it wasn't just growing, it was ripping itself out of the ground and sneaking around on skinny white roots.Laura Ruby Growing Plants Sayings By Laura Ruby: Miguel hated the corn, said the plants seemed . . . alive. When Finn reminded
From dandelions to daffodils, from ferns to figs, from potatoes to pine trees - every plant growing on land is striving toward two prizes: light, which comes from above, and water, which comes from below. Any contest between two plants can be decided in one move, when the winner simultaneously reaches higher and digs deeper than the loser.Hope Jahren Growing Plants Sayings By Hope Jahren: From dandelions to daffodils, from ferns to figs, from potatoes to pine trees - every
My parents owned a plants nursery. We all grew up growing things and planting things and selling things, and I also managed landscape crews.Jack Dangermond Growing Plants Sayings By Jack Dangermond: My parents owned a plants nursery. We all grew up growing things and planting things
Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at us, conclusions grow up in us like fungus: one morning they are there, we know not how, and they gaze upon us, morose and gray. Woe to the thinker who is not the gardener but only the soil of the plants that grow in him.Friedrich Nietzsche Growing Plants Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Out of damp and gloomy days, out of solitude, out of loveless words directed at
I couldn't see the end of the corridor, so I stared at the entrance. The ship was a magnificent piece of living technology. Third Fish was a Miri 12, a type of ship closely related to a shrimp. Miri 12s were stable calm creatures with natural exoskeletons that could withstand the harshness of space. They were genetically enhanced to grow three breathing chambers within their bodies. Scientists planted rapidly growing plants within these three enormous rooms that not only produced oxygen from the CO2 directed in from other parts of the ship, but also absorbed benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. This was some of the most amazing technology I'd ever read about. Once settled on the ship, I was determined to convince someone to let me see one of these amazing rooms. But at the moment, I wasn't thinking about the technology of the ship. I was on the threshold now, between home and my future.Nnedi Okorafor Growing Plants Sayings By Nnedi Okorafor: I couldn't see the end of the corridor, so I stared at the entrance. The
I don't believe vegans (or vegetarians) who still get their (packaged, preservative/chemical-ridden) food from industrial food systems have any righteous ground to stand on, nor do I think a deep look at the sentient life of plants or the true environmental impact of agriculture permits them any comfortable distance from cruelty. Everything in this world eats something else to survive, and that something else, whether running on blood or chlorophyll, would always rather continue to live rather than become sustenance for another. No animal wants to be penned up and milked, or caged and harvested, and you've never seen plants growing in regimented lines of their own accord.Brian Awehali Growing Plants Sayings By Brian Awehali: I don't believe vegans (or vegetarians) who still get their (packaged, preservative/chemical-ridden) food from industrial
My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you. NoahNicholas Sparks Growing Plants Sayings By Nicholas Sparks: My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between
I've always been more interested in organisms that can move on their own than in stationary plants. But when I canoe or hike along the edge of lakes or oceans and see trees that seem to be growing out of rock faces, I am blown away. How do they do it?David Suzuki Growing Plants Sayings By David Suzuki: I've always been more interested in organisms that can move on their own than in
Well, even a garden grows stranglers, love. It grows them naturally, all by itself. They creep up and choke the plants that are growing from the very same soil as they are. We each have our demons, our self-destruct button. Even in gardens. Pretty as they may be. If you don't potter, you don't notice them.Cecelia Ahern Growing Plants Sayings By Cecelia Ahern: Well, even a garden grows stranglers, love. It grows them naturally, all by itself. They
I wish that every child could have growing space because I think children are a little like plants. If they grow too close together, they become thin and sickly and never obtain maximum growth. We need room to grow.Peace Pilgrim Growing Plants Sayings By Peace Pilgrim: I wish that every child could have growing space because I think children are a
You will be astonished when I tell you what this curious play of carbon amounts to. A candle will burn some four, five, six, or seven hours. What, then, must be the daily amount of carbon going up into the air in the way of carbonic acid! ... Then what becomes of it? Wonderful is it to find that the change produced by respiration ... is the very life and support of plants and vegetables that grow upon the surface of the earth.Michael Faraday Growing Plants Sayings By Michael Faraday: You will be astonished when I tell you what this curious play of carbon amounts
Not as the plants and flowers of Earth, growing peacefully beneath a simple sun, were the blossoms of the planet Lophai. Coiling and uncoiling in double dawns; tossing tumultuously under vast suns of jade green and balas-ruby orange; swaying and weltering in rich twilights, in aurora-curtained nights, they resembled fields of rooted serpents that dance eternally to an other-worldly music.Clark Ashton Smith Growing Plants Sayings By Clark Ashton Smith: Not as the plants and flowers of Earth, growing peacefully beneath a simple sun, were
I'm a real phony, one of those half-baked hot-house plants we're growing nowadays, instead of the honest-to-God two-fisted women we should be ...Elaine Dundy Growing Plants Sayings By Elaine Dundy: I'm a real phony, one of those half-baked hot-house plants we're growing nowadays, instead of
And all the times I was picking up potatoes, I did have conversations with them. Too, I did have thinks of all their growing days there in the ground, and all the things they did hear. Earth-voices are glad voices, and earth-songs come up from the ground through the plants; and in their flowering, and in the days before these days are come, they do tell the earth-songs to the wind ... I have thinks these potatoes growing here did have knowings of star-songs.Opal Whiteley Growing Plants Sayings By Opal Whiteley: And all the times I was picking up potatoes, I did have conversations with them.
National Permaculture Day is a chance to share thoughts, visions and lots of common sense ways that we can all make a positive difference to the world we live in. Its all about combining age old truths and skills with new and innovative thinking and technologies ... .people, plants and landscapes growing together, designing and nurturing a healthy community along the way.Costa Georgiadis Growing Plants Sayings By Costa Georgiadis: National Permaculture Day is a chance to share thoughts, visions and lots of common sense
Agriculture probably required a far greater discipline than did any form of food collecting. Seeds had to be planted at certain seasons, some protection had to be given to the growing plants and animals, harvests had to be reaped, stored and divided. Thus, we might argue that it was neither leisure time nor a sedentary existence but the more rigorous demands associated with an agricultural way of life that led to great cultural changes.Charles Heiser Growing Plants Sayings By Charles Heiser: Agriculture probably required a far greater discipline than did any form of food collecting. Seeds
The green man said, "I'm a fool, I suppose, to put any confidence in you. And yet I do. I am a free man, come from your own future to explore your age." "That is impossible." "The green color that puzzles your people so much is only what you call pond scum. We have altered it until it can live in our blood, and by its intervention have at last made our peace in humankind's long struggle with the sun. In us, the tiny plants live and die, and our bodies feed from them and their dead and require no other nourishment. All the famines, and all the labor of growing food, are ended." "But you must have sun." "Yes," the green man said. "And I have not enough here.Gene Wolfe Growing Plants Sayings By Gene Wolfe: The green man said, "I'm a fool, I suppose, to put any confidence in you.
They are living, growing, reproducing, pushing and pulling in the ground all around us at all times. We accept that without even noticing. Open your eyes, people. This is amazing. If plants made sounds, it would all be different. But they communicate with color and shape and size and texture. They don't meow or bark or tweet. We think they don't have eyes, but they see the angle of the sun and the rise of the moon. They don't just feel the wind; they change directions because of it.Holly Goldberg Sloan Growing Plants Sayings By Holly Goldberg Sloan: They are living, growing, reproducing, pushing and pulling in the ground all around us at
We have had drought where I live in New Mexico for several years, and I began to think about rain and green plants and growing. Fairies naturally came to mind when I imagined walking in green places. They are workers for the growth principle.Mei-mei Berssenbrugge Growing Plants Sayings By Mei-mei Berssenbrugge: We have had drought where I live in New Mexico for several years, and I
A farmer is helpless to grow grain; all he can do is provide the right conditions for the growing of grain. He cultivates the ground, he plants the seed, he waters the plants, and then the natural forces of the earth take over and up comes the grain ... This is the way it is with the Spiritual Disciplines - they are a way of sowing to the Spirit ... By themselves the Spiritual Disciplines can do nothing; they can only get us to the place where something can be done.Richard J. Foster Growing Plants Sayings By Richard J. Foster: A farmer is helpless to grow grain; all he can do is provide the right
Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process - green plants growing on regenerating soil.Allan Savory Growing Plants Sayings By Allan Savory: Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from
The fact that, in the United States, there are people serving ten-year prison terms for growing marijuana plants in their backyards while Wall Street racketeers, who have defrauded millions of people and destroyed the global economy, walk free is a kind of bizarre hypocrisy that boggles my mind.Mark Haskell Smith Growing Plants Sayings By Mark Haskell Smith: The fact that, in the United States, there are people serving ten-year prison terms for
You do not have to force yourself to do anything at all. There is a continual exchange, a continual dance. It is similar to the sun shining and plants growing. The sun has no desire to create the vegetation; plants simply react to sunlight and the situation develops naturally.Chogyam Trungpa Growing Plants Sayings By Chogyam Trungpa: You do not have to force yourself to do anything at all. There is a
All man has to do is cooperate with the big forces, the sun, the rain, the growing urge. Seeds sprout, stems grow, leaves spread in the sunlight. Man plants, weeds, cultivates and harvests. It sounds simple, and it is simple, with the simplicity of great truths.Hal Borland Growing Plants Sayings By Hal Borland: All man has to do is cooperate with the big forces, the sun, the rain,
It was so quiet in that room I could practically hear the plants growing.Suzanne Kelman Growing Plants Sayings By Suzanne Kelman: It was so quiet in that room I could practically hear the plants growing.
Mixed with the resinous scent of the firs there came another smell, strong and fragrant, yet sharp - the perfume of flowers, but of some kind unknown to Hazel. He followed it to its source at the edge of the wood. It came from several thick patches of soapwort growing along the edge of the pasture. Some of the plants were not yet in bloom, their buds curled in pink, pointed spirals held in the pale green calices, but most were already star-flowering and giving off their strong scent. The bats were hunting among the flies and moths attracted to the soapwort.Richard Adams Growing Plants Sayings By Richard Adams: Mixed with the resinous scent of the firs there came another smell, strong and fragrant,
Congo, my country, has the largest forest in Africa, maybe the second-largest in the world. I was born in a forest area, and when I was growing up, I assisted my uncle, who was a poacher. That was good, because it grew my passion for protecting the forest and plants.Corneille Ewango Growing Plants Sayings By Corneille Ewango: Congo, my country, has the largest forest in Africa, maybe the second-largest in the world.
Now I'll give you some advice, since you been asking for it. Happiness is like them plants you been yapping about. Sometimes it's growing right in your own backyard and you don't even know it.Cathie Pelletier Growing Plants Sayings By Cathie Pelletier: Now I'll give you some advice, since you been asking for it. Happiness is like
It's worse than slave trade because what is being traded is the very knowledge that makes survival possible for 80 percent of the people of this world. These 80 percent live on the biodiversity and the knowledge they have evolved as part of a rich collective heritage involving the use of seeds for growing crops and medicinal plants for healing.Vandana Shiva Growing Plants Sayings By Vandana Shiva: It's worse than slave trade because what is being traded is the very knowledge that
A set of ideas, a point of view, a frame of reference is in space only an intersection, the state of affairs at some given momentin the consciousness of one man or many men, but in time it has evolving form, virtually organic extension. In time ideas can be thought of as sprouting, growing, maturing, bringing forth seed and dying like plants.John Dos Passos Growing Plants Sayings By John Dos Passos: A set of ideas, a point of view, a frame of reference is in space
...until the weeds were all wilted in a heap, and all I could think was how there would be more weeds tomorrow and wouldn't it be easier for the world if everything just stayed still, just stopped growing all together? Maybe it would, but we won't do that, we won't stop, plants don't, people don't, we keep showing up and living and trying to do something and dying and what was it that all these vines and leaves were struggling toward year after century after eternity?Catherine Lacey Growing Plants Sayings By Catherine Lacey: ...until the weeds were all wilted in a heap, and all I could think was
People slice up tree trunks, nail the pieces together into boxy shapes, and then go inside to sleep. Trees use the wood in their trunks for a different purpose - namely, they use it to fight with other plants. From dandelions to daffodils, from ferns to figs, from potatoes to pine trees - every plant growing on land is striving toward two prizes: light, which comes from above, and water, which comes from below. Any contest between two plants can be decided in one move, when the winner simultaneously reaches higher and digs deeper than the loser. Consider the tremendous advantage that wood confers to one of the contestants during such a battle: armed with a stiff-yet-flexible, strong-yet-light prop that separates - and connects - leaves and roots, trees have dominated the tournament for more than four hundred million years.Hope Jahren Growing Plants Sayings By Hope Jahren: People slice up tree trunks, nail the pieces together into boxy shapes, and then go
Genetic engineering is not really something new. Human beings have been fiddling with genes for as long as ten thousand years. That's how long they have been growing plants and herding animals.Isaac Asimov Growing Plants Sayings By Isaac Asimov: Genetic engineering is not really something new. Human beings have been fiddling with genes for
When Isaiah predicted that spears would become pruning hooks, that's a reference to cultivating. Pruning and trimming and growing and paying close attention to the plants and whether they're getting enough water and if their roots are deep enough. Soil under the fingernails, grapes being trampled under bare feet, fingers sticky from handling fresh fruit.
It's that green stripe you get around the sole of your shoes when you mow the lawn.
Life in the age to come.
Earthy.
Rob Bell Growing Plants Sayings By Rob Bell: When Isaiah predicted that spears would become pruning hooks, that's a reference to cultivating. Pruning
Poetry deserves the honor it obtains as the eldest offspring of literature, and the fairest. It is the fruitfulness of many plants growing into one flower and sowing itself over the world in shapes of beauty and color, which differ with the soil that receives and the sun that ripens the seed. In Persia, it comes up the rose of Hafiz; in England, the many-blossomed tree of Shakespeare.Robert Aris Willmott Growing Plants Sayings By Robert Aris Willmott: Poetry deserves the honor it obtains as the eldest offspring of literature, and the fairest.
Oh, how an animal that is hurt looks up at you, John! An animal's actions can inform you if it is in pain. It don't hop and jump around as usual. No. You find a sad, crouching, cringing, small bunch of fur or hair, whining, and plainly asking you to aid it. It isn't hard to find out what is wrong, John; any man or woman who would pass by such a sight, just isn't worth knowing. I just can't withstand it! Why, I think that not only animals, but plants can know pain. I carry a drink to many a poor, thirsty growing thing; or, if it is torn up I put it kindly back, and fix its soil up as comfortably as I can. Anything that is living, John, is worthy of Man's aid.Ernest Vincent Wright Growing Plants Sayings By Ernest Vincent Wright: Oh, how an animal that is hurt looks up at you, John! An animal's actions
But civilized human beings are alarmingly ignorant of the fact that they are continuous with their natural surroundings. It is as necessary to have air, water, plants, insects, birds, fish, and mammals as it is to have brains, hearts, lungs, and stomachs. The former are our external organs in the same way that the latter are our internal organs. If then, we can no more live without the things outside than without those inside, the plain inference is that the words "I" and "myself " must include both sides. The sun, the earth, and the forests are just as much features of your own body as your brain. Erosion of the soil is as much a personal disease as leprosy, and many "growing communities" are as disastrous as cancer.Alan W. Watts Growing Plants Sayings By Alan W. Watts: But civilized human beings are alarmingly ignorant of the fact that they are continuous with
I observed that plants not only have a faculty to correct bad air in six to ten days, by growing in it ... but that they perform this important office in a complete manner in a few hours; that this wonderful operation is by no means owing to the vegetation of the plant, but to the influence of light of the sun upon the plant.Jan Ingenhousz Growing Plants Sayings By Jan Ingenhousz: I observed that plants not only have a faculty to correct bad air in six
Eventually decomposition strips you bare, even in that solid oak you've taken the shape of. You've helped, finally, to enrich something around you, by feeding the soil with your skin and fat and muscle. Now the soil is full of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and especially nitrogen. Now the soil is supremely satisfied, and you'd be okay with that. You always did like growing things. You always were better with plants than people.Amber Sparks Growing Plants Sayings By Amber Sparks: Eventually decomposition strips you bare, even in that solid oak you've taken the shape of.
I observed on most collected stones the imprints of innumerable plant fragments which were so different from those which are growing in the Lyonnais, in the nearby provinces, and even in the rest of France, that I felt like collecting plants in a new world ... The number of these leaves, the way they separated easily, and the great variety of plants whose imprints I saw, appeared to me just as many volumes of botany representing in the same quarry the oldest library of the world.Antoine De Jussieu Growing Plants Sayings By Antoine De Jussieu: I observed on most collected stones the imprints of innumerable plant fragments which were so
The columbine ... is a graceful slender creature, a female seeking retirement, and growing freest and most graceful where it is most alone. I observed that the more shaded plants were always the tallest.Dorothy Wordsworth Growing Plants Sayings By Dorothy Wordsworth: The columbine ... is a graceful slender creature, a female seeking retirement, and growing freest
We can in fact only define a weed, mutatis mutandis, in terms of the well-known definition of dirt - as matter out of place. What we call a weed is in fact merely a plant growing where we do not want it.Edward James Salisbury Growing Plants Sayings By Edward James Salisbury: We can in fact only define a weed, mutatis mutandis, in terms of the well-known
When Buddhists say, "A bodhisattva fears not the result, but only the cause," they mean that we must expend the bulk of our energy planting good roots today, rather than fretting about the plants that are already growing from the roots we planted in the past.Hsing Yun Growing Plants Sayings By Hsing Yun: When Buddhists say, "A bodhisattva fears not the result, but only the cause," they mean
Our moral faculties must be placed highest, else they can no more flourish than could a plant growing under the shade and drip of trees.Henry Ward Beecher Growing Plants Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: Our moral faculties must be placed highest, else they can no more flourish than could
Bodily delight is a sensory experience, not any different from pure looking or the pure feeling with which a beautiful fruit fills the tongue; it is a great, an infinite learning that is given to us, a knowledge of the world, the fullness and the splendor of all knowledge ... the individual ... can remember that all beauty in animals and plants is a silent, enduring form of love and yearning, and he can see the animal, as he sees plants, patiently and willingly uniting and multiplying and growing, not out of physical pleasure, not out of physical pain, but bowing to necessities that are greater than pleasure and pain, and more powerful than will and withstanding. If only human beings could more humbly receive this mystery
which the world is filled with ...
Rainer Maria Rilke Growing Plants Sayings By Rainer Maria Rilke: Bodily delight is a sensory experience, not any different from pure looking or the pure
I send out thoughts of love and peace and healing to the whole universe: to all trees and plants and growing things, to all beasts and birds and fishes, and to every man, woman and child on earth, without any distinction.Emmet Fox Growing Plants Sayings By Emmet Fox: I send out thoughts of love and peace and healing to the whole universe: to
Different varieties of plants is a hobby. He spends some time in his mango garden before attending court. As a criminal lawyer, I argued several cases in the last ten years. But, doing farm work and growing organic food gives meAnonymous Growing Plants Sayings By Anonymous: Different varieties of plants is a hobby. He spends some time in his mango garden
The Labyrinth, a walled garden where humans tortured plants and flowers into growing in straight lines and sharp corners so unnatural that it hurt the mind to see, was east of Thorn's court, on the very edge of the Center Kingdom.Jon Evans Growing Plants Sayings By Jon Evans: The Labyrinth, a walled garden where humans tortured plants and flowers into growing in straight
Curiously, growing Papaver somniferum in America is legal - unless, that is, it is done in the knowledge that you are growing a drug, when, rather magically, the exact same physical act becomes the felony of "manufacturing a controlled substance." Evidently the Old Testament and the criminal code both make a connection between forbidden plants and knowledge.Michael Pollan Growing Plants Sayings By Michael Pollan: Curiously, growing Papaver somniferum in America is legal - unless, that is, it is done
In the time that I have been acquainted with this region I have become increasingly aware of it as a testament of water, the origin and guide of its contours and gradients and of all the lives - the plants and small creatures, and the culture - that evolved here. That was always here to be seen, of course, and the recognition has forced itself, in one form or other, upon people in every part of the world who have been directly involved with the growing of living things. The gardener who ignores it is soon left with no garden.W.S. Merwin Growing Plants Sayings By W.S. Merwin: In the time that I have been acquainted with this region I have become increasingly
Our immigrant plant teachers offer a lot of different models for how not to make themselves welcome on a new continent. Garlic mustard poisons the soil so that native species will die. Tamarisk uses up all the water. Foreign invaders like loosestrife, kudzu, and cheat grass have the colonizing habit of taking over others' homes and growing without regard to limits. But Plantain is not like that. Its strategy was to be useful, to fit into small places, to coexist with others around the dooryard, to heal wounds. Plantain is so prevalent, so well integrated, that we think of it as native. It has earned the name bestowed by botanists for plants that have become our own. Plantain is not indigenous but "naturalized." This is the same term we use for the foreign-born when they become citizens in our country.Robin Wall Kimmerer Growing Plants Sayings By Robin Wall Kimmerer: Our immigrant plant teachers offer a lot of different models for how not to make
Everybody's got plants, but most are just growing weeds. The cultivated have greater gardens, finer and gaudier gardens.Peter Schjeldahl Growing Plants Sayings By Peter Schjeldahl: Everybody's got plants, but most are just growing weeds. The cultivated have greater gardens, finer
But the coconut is also a symbol of resilience, Samar. Even in the conditions where there's very little nourishment and even less nurturance, it flourishes, growing taller than most of the plants around it.Neesha Meminger Growing Plants Sayings By Neesha Meminger: But the coconut is also a symbol of resilience, Samar. Even in the conditions where
There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers. They live inside a box and they think people who don't fit into their box are weird. But I'll tell you what, generic people are the weird people. They are like genetically-manipulated plants growing inside a laboratory, like indistinguishable faces, like droids. Like ignorance.C. JoyBell C. Growing Plants Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: There are people who are generic. They make generic responses and they expect generic answers.
Fall is not the end of the gardening year; it is the start of next year's growing season. The mulch you lay down will protect your perennial plants during the winter and feed the soil as it decays, while the cleaned up flower bed will give you a huge head start on either planting seeds or setting out small plants.Thalassa Cruso Growing Plants Sayings By Thalassa Cruso: Fall is not the end of the gardening year; it is the start of next
In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt or browning, or just didn't look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the other plants. "Say goodbye to your friend," he'd say to them. "He just couldn't cut it ... " Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large, empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat.
