With the atrocious weather that we have had lately and again today, I thought that I would upload this picture , but I don't think that my own feeling, today, of "nearer" is the same sentiment that was meant by the poet.
Likewise, these days, even in fine weather after I have spent an hour, or so, of hard graft in the garden, and I rest my old, aching, bones on the seat near this plaque and read the third line of the verse, I can't help but think that perhaps I am getting too much 'nearer' than is desired. LOL.
The feeling soon goes away, though, when I open a can. Wink

I hope that you like my 'Silly Sunday' offering.
Brian

Silly and serious...
I was out with our local 'In Bloom' group the other week and got a shot of a plaque reading 'One man in the garden is worth two in the house.'

Mind you,you would have to open a lot more than one can for me !!

Oh my...I LOVE that verse, Brian! Gonna jot it down.

Your write-up cracked me up where you opened a can Grin Yeah, open that can every now and then...and don't think about getting nearer! That's an order, soldier.

Wink

Thanks for sharing this plaque with us, and so beautifully too.

A fine shot of this fine plaque Brian, as to your comments re your gardening efforts (and woes) these days, I can well understand where you're coming from and totally agree, though my restoration is a large tot of 'the water of life' rather than what is available from a can!

Many thanks for your p.m's, sorry I didn't read the first one sooner, will be replying in due course, meantime it's catch up time, which isn't being helped by a contrary site/computer/ISP provider, take your pick!

Rgds., Jim
