This month’s speaker:

Our October speaker is Barbara Blossom Ashmun, author of How Gardening Has Changed My Life and also Love Letters to my Garden.  She will be selling and talking about her book as well as reading from Love Letters to my Garden.  Here’s an excerpt from her book, Married to My Garden, pages 46-47.

“Our joy is in tending, even when circumstances are difficult, just as musicians play well even when the lights are hot, even when a string breaks, or a wrong note sounds.  Gardening is not a solo performance, for we collaborate with weather and wildlife, with soil and seasons.  We are limited by the strength and endurance of our own mortal bodies and the time allowed for gardening, which is never enough.  Still, we play on, doing our best and playing with feeling.”
