From Gardening Don'ts (1913) by M.C. 42


DON’T banish charm and
mystery from your gar-
den, while you welcome those
dull companions — custom
and convention.

‘How willingly would I
strew the path of all with
flowers ; how beautiful a
delight to make the world
joyous !

‘The song should never be
silent 3 the dance never still ;
the laugh should sound like
water which runs for ever.’

Richard Jefferies.
