Thanks Cindy, and Nate for positive messages. I am reminded of a quote by Marcel Proust:

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

As delightful as always

John, I have not heard this song before.  I really enjoyed it - the music as well as your beautiful artwork!  I am glad you focused on the last verse - as it can be a great example for most any situation in life when we face a difficult situation.

Thanks, Gordon. I always love hearing from you and getting your feedback. By the way, that narrative idea, is something I have seen you do so you it shows that we do learn from each other.

Some added comments to: "The Seeds of Love".  The gardener was actually mowing the grass when he sang  poetically about "the grass that is trampled underfoot".  And the other comment is that in Madeline MacNeil's version of the song she sings: "I oftentimes have wished I were in that young man's arms That once had this heart of mine." Enjoy.
