Beauty as well as Bread - Garden Photo of the Day

Steinhardt Garden - photo by Jan Johnsen

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
- John Muir  


  1. Gardens rest and play in and even the work they require is a blessing. I have long had John Muir's tender words on the flag of my web log spot. It is lovely to see it here among your superlative garden photos.

    1. Thank you Jeannette! He was our prophet, living in his cabin in Yosemite...
