This is the first in a series tracing the natural history of garden plants with beautiful photographs and observational notes. How seldom do we note the little miracles of life occurring all about us? How little do we know about the most common things because we do not take a care? By these posts I hope to increase your wonder for the Creator, inspire your own deliberate observations, and remind us that “all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.” [First Peter 1:24-25]
