'Learn of the green-world what can be thy place . . . '
' . . . catch the heart off guard and blow it open.'
'At the still point of the turning world . . . there the dance is . . .'
More than ever before, we need to fall back in love with the land.
'Plants embody everything that I like to have around me: presence, personality, character. They are supple and therefore strong, and yet soft-spoken and gentle; they are fragrant and delicate; they have movement, colour, structure, scale and proportion. Plants are large in form, tiny in detail and always a single whole. Plants are beautiful in sun and rain, in tropical heat, fighting immortal cold, dancing in the wind, buffeted by storms. Plants have long been part of the earth's history. They come from afar. Their beauty is deep and beyond question. It can be overwhelming; their fragrance beguiling.'
