Someone who need not apologize for having dirty feet and hands.
Someone who longs for large piles of animal manure.
Someone who compliments others large piles of manure.
Someone who knows that kitchen scraps are as good as gold.
Someone who lets the spider live in the garden.
Someone who appreciates the presence of slimy frogs and toads in flower beds.
Someone who knows what can come from a teeny tiny seed.
Someone who teaches children about life through gardening.
A gardener is someone who cherishes the friendships that evolve from the love of plants.
