Getting to Know the Outdoors Better

The Landscape Garden

“The garden has long been perceived as the highest, most perfect form of all art creations, the one closest to God and bearing the imagery of paradise itself. Indeed, the timeless quote, “One is closest to God in the garden,” has been the splendid pleasure driving countless generations to transform the land into garden. No matter how pleasurable, how physically and spiritually rewarding working the vegetable garden and nurturing the home orchard may be, however, the paradise of gardening is the creation and maintenance of a landscape garden. This is the garden of art, the garden of soul. A landscape garden is a plot of ground made beautiful by the arrangement and careful cultivation of plants. The art is called landscape gardening and its artist and cultivator a landscape gardener. Landscaping one’s home ground is the means by which most Minnesotans become acquainted with at least the fringes of the art of landscape gardening. When they dream of home it is a house in a setting, a setting of lovely trees and shrubs civilized with a carpet of lawn and an arrangement of beautiful flowers.

Landscape gardening is primarily a visual art form. Its beauty is first to be seen, but its purpose is to stimulate thought, to cause to dream, to effect memory, to inspire. The landscape garden is classically to be a place of quiet where the visitor, upon entering, finds a closer communion with the thoughts and feelings of all who have ever gardened this Earth than with the time and troubles of the day.

Although picturesque, the landscape garden is not a painting, it is a performance. Its artist is not a painter but a choreographer arranging not fixed colors and forms on a canvas, but directing exits and entrances of living members of Earth’s realm, plants bearing color and form, lines and textures which, especially in our northland, are constantly changing. Yesterday’s garden as yesterday’s ballet will never again be performed. Yet the skilled landscaper garden artist, by tailoring shrubs and trees to a particular style or by using annual flowers for sweeps of color, can slow change in the garden to give the impression of permanence.

The landscape garden is to be entered, as one enters a cathedral or library. In English literature one “retires” to or “withdraws” into the library, presumably to consult or escape with some thought, some dream, some memory, some inspiration in print. To aid withdrawal there must be border. The gardened place must be defined so the eye and mind cannot wander; so thoughts and dreams cannot be interrupted. With no borders the landscape garden is no garden at all, but a field.

The arrangement of plants is to the landscape gardener what the arrangement of chords is to the pianist. Although it is possible for a novice pianist to find a pleasing chord, one chord does not make a composition. Likewise, a novice gardener may plant a pleasing combination of flowers and shrubbery, but a landscape garden this does not make. “Composers” of the successful landscape garden know their plants. They know plants’ shapes and sizes and how these can be tailored to style. They know plant colors and textures and when and how they change. Garden artists know the sun and shadow of the garden and how to introduce or exclude either. They know plant preferences for shade, soil, and moisture. They gain their knowledge primarily from the experience of working with plants, from years of planting and replacing until the right combination suits the eye.

Not only must the successful landscape garden be designed and planted, it must be given time to mature. Gardens, like people, gain character with age. It may take years, decades before a landscape garden performs its best. Trees cannot yet be manufactured. And the garden must be groomed, regularly tended by caring, experienced hands, the hands of an artist, the hands of a worker. And even when all this is done well, what is achieved is an arrangement of living plants each and all subject to Nature’s mood and dictate, to stand or fall as Nature sees fit. A garden as planned is a garden never achieved.”

Recently, American hero, Dennis Prager, while listing a number of devotions occupying his time, admitted that he wasn’t into “the Garden”.  Yet, he is a very religious man, devoted to the Books of Moses.

The human soul has limited time to practice God’s  devotions in one lifetime.   Dennis Prager is urban, New York City tar and pavement whose parents were neither dependent upon, nor inspired by the power and beauty of vegetative seeds….seeds upon which the human animal of all sexes, shapes, colors, and sizes relies on for food, protection, inspiration,  and exquisite beauty.

The beautiful landscape garden in its finest forms, inspires the human soul, imagination, and devotion to the power of visual living matter.

There is not much time in our  human life’s calendar to do all things good and inspiring arising from ones soul……

I am a regular Dennis Prager fan and have been for more than a decade.  Being a Brooklyner, perhaps he is too urban, perhaps too urbane as well, to recognize the value of gardening the human soul with God’s Biblical  Truth and Beauty of   mind  and  behavior arises from the Garden of Eden…..and the touch and feel, that ONE IS CLOSEST TO GOD IN THE GARDEN.

Think of all the flowers, shrubs, and trees of the human  mind you are tending every day you share your sermons whether political, social, or religious.

 

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF BEAUTY IN OUR WORLD

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF BEAUTY IN AMERICA’S GODLESS, FASCIST, LEFTIST WORLD TODAY

Beauty:  — arrives to  America rarely these days.   It has become a Godless place, this United States of America ruled by Democrats and other such leftist, fascist kind trained by the Godless at your university and college from American coast to American coast.  Shakespeare was “raised” a human male during the latter part of the 16th century England.

I am in my dying years of a wonderful American Godfearing life.  I was taught to discover God and “his” beauty, at home, school, Church, at newspaper, by family  and society….after all, if one wants to be simple about JudeoChristianity, God and Beauty both govern the Soul….as I was taught by old maid school teacher after old maid school teacher of the most learned Godfearing kind during my most formative years of learning right from wrong, beauty from ugliness.

I was in ninth grade when I was forced to read and learn the words of the following  written utterance by William Shakespeare by a red-wigged, 100 year old appearing,  90 pound or less relic of a magnificent world passing by,  Mabel Wicker.

I couldn’t read books….Dyslexia hadn’t been ‘invented’ then.   But, I could read encyclopedias, newspapers and remember  words if I had heard such words before reading them….

Sometimes Beauty appears in Life rising  from the Ugly, the Evil and Wicked, I was told.   Miss Mabel Wicker made me recognize and seek beauty in  this Shakespeare, a craving which has never left me  to this very day.

I was forced to learn the following soliloquy for its beauty and content…at age 14……

Its utterance was designed to occur in Scotland of yesteryear, Thane Macbeth and his wife, had slipped into evil  to gain power by  plotting and committing a murder…..one of the Ten Commandments a JudeoChristian of that period and ours, must avoid committing to remain in the world of God’s Grace….in the thinking animal’s war between   good and evil….

Their evil was exposed….punishment was approaching.  Lady Macbeth’s wife chose to  commit suicide, leaving the  Thane  alone to face  his impending doom,  as the ‘righteous’ were advancing to  claim society’s  justice.

Shakespeare’s Godless Macbeth turns to Truth of his  atheist’s  death…..in words, never, never made more beautiful for the Godfearing human ear and soul to absorb…..

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.”

Shakespeare is no longer taught in feminized, black racist, and leftist Latino America today!   Beauty and God have been made to disappear at Harvard!!!

‘Til Death Do Us Part….

Does anyone bother to get married these days, the world of our American fascist Left?

Why bother when ‘modern’, in the groove modern Americans, begin their  screwing  around by age 14?   Why bother when Americans no longer indulge in the JudeoChristian world.  Why bother when marijuana is on hand?

Why bother when lesbianism is the most popular brand of learnings, feelings, beings  in today’s world of ‘valued’ up-to-date human female animal of expression sold at college, at school and Hollywood and, until recently  has swaggered so leftly following their above-the-law, goddess, their   beloved, crooked Hillary Roddham Clinton ?

Why bother when ones culture hangs out to dry dictating  “ONE SEX FITS ALL?”    Surely, something must be rotten in our today’s American Denmark!   Indeed!

Charlie Schumer’s Fascists have arrived.  Leftists, atheists, gays, Black Lives Matter hoodlums,  gangsters, druggies, invaders, CNN, NBC, MSNBC misfits  of all stripes, shapes and sizes  even some born in the good old USA, sold and led  by the Schumer sleaze bags to make America DEMOCRAT, ONE  forever and ever.

Never in our once Beautiful America has such evil been gathered so  tightly into one machine advertised and sold by “college educated” pinched-brained junior -high Pol Pots, Stalinists, Hitlerians  at CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, PBS, CBS and where ever the New York Times and Washington Post extend their verbal tentacles…all selling fake freedom, fake news, fake history, fake America.

This truly wretched refuse of our teeming shore is led by the America’s  fascists, not primarily abroad but at home celebrating its VICTORY OVER THE GOD-FEARING!

Cultures as individuals, deserve what they earn……..Wake up America!!   You are so lucky to have caused Donald J. Trump to be your leader to challenge the  Schumer Democrat fascists now in control on the once honorable American Democrat Party, now owning the feminized college world, the nation’s communications world, and its entertainment world, and even throughout much of the religious world, its JudeoChristianity, particularly the Jewish  part.

The  more you know “Dennis Prager”, the more traditional God-fearing honest, decent American thinking citizen seeking Truth you will become……Seek Truth, rather than become feminized with feelings,  and you shall be Blessed  with happiness, curiosity, if not more!

I have  lived my life.  Living is Tough…..that  I have learned from it, yet  I have been very blessed……!  So, I advise especially  to you guys, hold yourself responsible for your deeds.

Above all, raise children!

Seek knowledge for the sake of knowing Truth, for as those wonderful old maid public school teachers pounded into my head  seventy,   nearly eighty years ago……”SEEK KNOWLEDGE, AND  YOU WILL BECOME CLOSER TO GOD, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL THINGS!”

America Won’t Be Great without Following GOOD Again

AMERICA WON’T BE GREAT AGAIN UNTIL WE’RE GOOD AGAIN

By Don Feder  at Barbwire….. article sent by Mark Waldeland:

“As campaign slogans go, Trump’s “Make America Great Again” wasn’t bad – especially compared to the Queen of Thorns’ “Better Together” (With Hill, it’s always about the collective.) But more than two months after the 2016 campaign ended, even Trump’s supporters have only a vague idea of what “Make America Great Again” means.

The left, which is race-obsessed, sneered that it really meant “Make America White Again.” In one of their typically dazzling displays of logic, the Democrats reasoned that since Trump wanted to deport illegal aliens, who are mostly non-white, the real goal of immigration enforcement is to make America “whiter” – as if national security, crime-control or fairness to low-income wage-earners couldn’t possibly be considerations.

Trump’s platform included border security, rebuilding our military, job creation, negotiating realistic trade deals and developing domestic energy – all worthy, even necessary, goals. But it’s values, not policies, that made America great in the first place. Only by rediscovering those virtues will our country return to its former glory….”    Please read on:

How Many Folks Attended Our Donald’s Inauguration?

Quote of the month……sent by Bruce Taber:
 
 
I don’t know (nor do I care) how many attended Trump’s inauguration.  But I can tell you exactly how many people attended Hillary’s inauguration.  And that’s the only number that matters.
