You, of course, must provide the elbow grease, the plants, and the water, but hostess Earth does the rest! Simply begin with the dirt as your canvas, add your favorite garden plants, and you are on your way to creating a spectacular, living scene. A garden of any sort without the hostess, our Earth, is simply impossible!

The Promise within the Garden
What makes a garden thrive? The Hostess Earth steps in and irons out any imperfections.

Ecclesiastes (NIV) says, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.”

Ease your way through the dark days in life with a stroll through your garden. If you don’t have your own plot, consider setting aside a sunny corner of your property or find a garden where you can meditate. Bring the beauty of nature into your world for long-lasting relief from your worries.
