Quotes about the Morning Garden

James Russell Lowell (that's exactly how I feel about dandelions. From the time I was a little girl, a lawn full of dandelions meant that summer wasn't very far away. I love them to this day.)
Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot. Sweet vapors rise from the earth. Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another. Bees are already at work.
*When was the last time you wandered through a garden first thing in the morning? It's almost magical with the scents, and the flowers waking up from a warm night of slumber! William Longgood couldn't have said it better!!
