Welcome back to the village of Vollehove. This is a public garden in the middle of the village called Marxveld. It is named from one of the two houses located at the entrance to the gardens ~ Marxveld and Eckelenboom.
This garden is separated into various gardens ~ the Middle Ages, Barok, Renaissance and Landscape gardens. This mulberry tree was planted somewhere between 1750 and 1800. Isn't that incredible!
This church is located in the corner of the gardens. With its views to the various gardens, I thought I would leave you this weekend with a number of fun garden quotes. They might even inspire you in your own gardening.
We are off to work more on the new terrace we are creating up at Cranberry Cottage. Will you be out working in your garden this weekend? Have a wonderful weekend not matter what you do!
"What a man needs in gardening is a cast-iron back, with a hinge in it."
~Charles Dudley Warner, My Summer in a Garden, 1871
"Gardening requires lots of water - most of it in the form of perspiration."
"I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day."
~F. Frankfort Moore, A Garden of Peace
"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed."
"I never had any other desire so strong, and so like to covetousness, as that one which I have had always, that I might be master at last of a small house and a large Garden."
~Abraham Cowley, The Garden, 1666
"God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done."
