“I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.”
I am a big fan of quotes and can really connect to this one as I have been in love with plants my whole life. This quote adds to the explanation I have of why I love to garden. I remember a few years back pondering to myself why it was that I loved gardening so much. I always have too. I realized it was because it appealed to all of my senses. Sight, touch, smell, taste and sound. I had to think about sound for a while but then I heard the birds chirping and realized that they were part of the garden too. It was a moment that felt spiritual in nature and this is why the words “too please my soul” are very powerful for me as I have experienced that exact feeling year after year. I think this quote is a perfect description of the pleasure that I feel when I am nurturing plants. Each one of the seven reasons Hobson gives for his love of growing is one that I can connect with. This quote is written using soft, pleasant language that feels comforting.

Tina I also love figured language even though English is my second language and hard for me to figure what is the meaning of the song, however when I give my full attention, and give more time I understand..i like lyrics or poetry because they usually talk about certain ideas that we may relate to them. I don’t mind spending some time and rereading lyrics because eventually I will get the right meaning behind it.
