young gardeners

12 x 12, oil on canvas

"How sublime to look down into the workhouse of nature,
to see her clouds, hail, snow, rain, and thunder,
all fabricated at our feet!
but, tho' an old man
I am but a young gardener."
Thomas Jefferson
As our country ages, may we choose to remain young gardeners, planting seeds of harmony and peace with each encounter.
Happy Birthday America!

Nice post Faye, Happy Canada Day and Independence Day to you. I do like the colors in this one. You have been busy (as a bee).
