If we modern people thought of our world as a garden, if we gardened more, then I think all the other creatures and things that grow in
the ground would be so much better off. Beauty can save the world! But that depends on how much we love beauty and seek it in our lives. Gardening is not only making the world around us beautiful once more but letting beauty transform us. Gardening grows from our deep longing for salvation, so that beauty fills our lives.
