Welcome to the Enclosed Garden of Susan Ernst. Literal as well as figurative, this blog explores the physical gardens which I cultivate, the spiritual garden within, and the intellectual garden of horticultural knowledge gathered through decades of study, observation and practice. Come and sit with me for a while. Let us together marvel at the delicate, intricate beauty of a flower.
I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields,
that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you
know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings,
till the summer comes again.”
