The Pursuit of Happiness

I love this 2013 post, including Colette’s reply in the comments section to a woman working to grow and nurture a similar paradise in the States:

“Creation begins with intent and a willingness to honour Nature.
All will manifest from that point.
Planting trees is a blessing from you to Nature and each blessing you plant will be returned over and over.
Those who seek to dominate her will be subject to the material world.
Those who honour and respect will be rewarded with joy and nurtured in abundance.
You are planting Eden.
Blessings from Bealtaine Cottage
Colx”

If we each do our own little part, we can and will get Back to the Garden! Food for body, heart, and soul.
