A Quote by Robin Lane Fox on expectation, good, idealism, improvement, neighbors, perfection, and work

Gardeners work with an ever-receding ideal of perfection; no sooner is something growing well than they see how to place it better or give it a better neighbor. To other's eyes, all may look as well as could be expected, but a good gardener's eye sees more to be improved.

A Quote by Robin Lane Fox on garden

in

Gardens can be sharp and spiky as well as rose-embowered and honeysuckle-twined: there are corners and settings where thistles are not such an asinine taste after all.
