Hello to All! I would love your input to this important question:

Why do you garden, despite physical challenges?

Why is it that, despite the aching knees or back, the fatigue, or whatever, you continue to garden, to love your garden, and stay involved with gardening?

I have to confess to an ulterior motive: I am the author of a book "Accessible Gardening," first published in 1997 by Stackpole Books. I'm in the process of updating it to a second edition, and I'm looking for thoughtful words and quotes by gardeners, for gardeners.

I would so greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts about gardening...why you garden, how it has helped you, what your greatest challenges are and how you've overcome them. Feel free to either reply to this post, or contact me personally using D-mail. You can choose to remain anonymous, but I'd really like to get to know you all better too!

Thank you all SO VERY MUCH! Annie (LysmachiaMoon)
