I don’t know if all gardeners are like me, connected to the Earth in a spiritual way. Connected to the plants, the animals and even insects in a way that is respectful, mindful and even a little awe inspired. There is a world within a garden that is balanced by nature in a way that I don’t think most ever understand. So quick to poison an insect because it’s eating their plant, rather than allow that insect to live and feed whatever it is that feeds on it. There is a plan even if you don’t know what it is. It all fits, works nicely together when we don’t interfere.
