I've always thought of my gardening efforts as a biological phenomenon. But now anticipating the spring I think of gardening in another way. As we plant, prune, weed, water, and fertilize, is it possible that we're really doing is sculpting a little corner of nature?
I guess it doesn't need to be formal. You don't even have to exert that much control. Could you even control it if you wanted to? But this spring as we start seeing the garden doing its thing, I'll be thinking about how maybe this too is a kind of artistic expression.
