Everything I Need to Know I Learned in a Garden

By Emilie Barnes

From Time Began in a Garden


  • Begin early.  But it’s never too late to start.
  • If it doesn’t work, try something else.
  • Life is fragile.  Protect it.
  • Life is enduring.  Trust it.
  • Life is daily.  Water it.  Weed it.  Prune it.
  • Life is indescribably beautiful.  Enjoy it and say thank you.
  • Growth takes time.  Be patient.  And while you’re waiting, pull a weed.
  • There’s something for everybody – different blooms for different rooms.
  • Pruning hurts.  Pruning helps you grow.
  • Recycle.
  • Sometimes the tiniest flowers smell the sweetest.
  • To everything there is a season.  But know what zone you’re in.
  • Dream big.  But try not to let ambition turn your joy into drudgery.
  • Grow what you love.  The love will keep it growing.
  • You reap what you sow.  But there will be surprises!
