Garden quotes inspiration from the garden

Ulmus parvifolia 'Golden Ray'
Such an lovely tree with delicate leaves only 1cm wide and 2cm long.

“Eyes that earth opens see and delight

Because of the leaves, because of the unfolding of the leaves.

The folding, veining, imbrications, fluttering, resting,

The green and deepening manifold of the leaves.

Eyes of the earth know only delight”
