“Mark out an area of your garden” from A Gardener’s Notebook

“Mark out an area in your garden, sit down – better yet, lie down on your belly – and start to take note of every living thing you see there.  First off you’ll see the grass, the daylilies, the small weeds.  Then look deeper.  You’ll see ants, aphids, beetles and a host of other insects.  Keep looking.  Dig down and turn the soil over a little or pull up a piece of turf. Now there are worms, spiders, sow bugs, spider mites and more. I can guarantee you that you will notice more than you ever thought possible in your small 1 meter area and all of it is there, teeming with life, all day long, every day.”
