"It is necessary to cultivate our garden." from Candide by Voltaire
"Gardens are the most complex art and the most rewarding. Art, science and nature are all connected. Exposing people to nature is such an important thing." Kulapat Yantrasast
I'm not sure where I found that quote by Yantrasast. He believes that gardens make people better. The quote is a perfect beginning for an ongoing Shadows On Stone series, Sculpture and the Garden, where I'll be writing and thinking about the complex arrangement we call a garden.
