I always had the impression that gardening was quite a peaceful and relaxing pastime, a way to become fully immersed in the present, merging with nature and pottering around enjoying the natural environment. It's not like that at all. Not the way I do it, anyway!
I run around all day planting stuff, chopping stuff, sweeping stuff and moving stuff. Then I have a little rest, look at what I've done and start dreaming of spring when I'll find out what everything's going to look like, if everything will flourish, how many bees, butterflies and interesting animals will come and visit as a result of my gardening, the smell of the garden, how much growth there'll be and whether the spaces I've left between plants will fill up nicely and on and on.
In a way, gardening teaches you to become the image of a gardener: patient. Because you have to be.
That could be a tagline in a commercial.
