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.

 

“Scientists” Rally for Climate Control!

LEFT-WING MASHUP   by David Rothbard  at CFACT:

Saturday’s “March for Science” dramatically illustrated that “science” is the last thing the global warming movement is about.

Yesterday I shared some of what I saw at the march.

Take a look at the classic collection of radical codswallop Marc Morano exposed over at Climate Depot.

Every politically correct, Left-wing fad of the moment was on display – all presented in the name of “science.”  It quickly became clear these marchers have no idea what science and its methods entail.  What they call “science” is nothing more than a rhetorical tactic designed to cut off thinking, debate, and free choice.  In short, “shut up and meet our demands.”

CFACT student leaders from George Washington University brought along a video camera and went on a search for people with an understanding of science at the march.  They posted their video to YouTube.

This coming Saturday is the “People’s Climate March” where those assembled will drop their scientific pretext still further and go all-in for the tired yet somehow again dangerous rhetoric of socialism. 

If the radicals in our streets have anything to teach us, it is that our society needs to remember what genuine science is all about.  We need a crash course in history even more.

Paris Climate Treaty? JUST SAY “NO” and “Never”!

PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULD RUN, NOT WALK, AWAY FROM THE PARIS CLIMATE TREATY

by Joseph Bash  at The Federalist:

The Paris Climate Treaty is a heat-seeking missile aimed solely at American jobs that will do nothing to reduce global warming. Why would we deploy it?

“Top officials in the Trump administration apparently are debating whether to withdraw from the Paris Climate Treaty, an agreement negotiated in the waning years of the Obama administration that would commit the United States to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 26 to 28 percent relative to 2005 levels by the year 2025.

The Heartland Institute has been studying climate change for nearly two decades. Our advice to the Trump administration is simple: Run, don’t walk, away from the Paris Climate Treaty! Here are our reasons for this recommendation. Sources for our statements are readily found here and here…….”   Please continue to learn more about the climate treaty fraud by clicking below:

The Importance of Being a Father!

Dennis Prager fan, Bruce Taber sent the beautiful  picture below.

We civilized, that is those of us older than 75,  wonder these days where  the college and university leftist enrolled  savages are coming from, both male and female and everyone in between.   We wonder what  the Black Lives Matter animals and the Madonna  feminazis of the street-left  drink for lunch to arouse their insanity to produce such ignorance and noise so frequently advertised and supported at CNN and the like.

Certainly the feminization of the social sciences at the  American University and the nation’s  Colleges of Education have caused the  abandonment of  teaching knowledge for the advancement of our  human understanding of existence,  environment, and the past.     Certainly these Obama revolutionaries at university and in sanctuary cities   are driven to create armies of  Black Racists, illegal immigrants, and  feminazis of all colors, sexes, shapes and sizes for the coming  “Peoples” revolution.

Atheism and Islamism have replaced JudeoChristianity  as the Leftist nation’s protected religions.

God only knows the number of male black savages, murderers, thieves,  vulgars of all kinds both native and illegals now in charge of geography in so many of our major  cities.    Marriage, the purpose of marriage,  the purpose of raising civilized, well educated, God-fearing off-spring free of drugs and leftist hates  has rapidly been  disappearing from our culture.    Half of our American  white community has been drawn into this same modern snake pit.  They follow politics on CNN and the like.

There is no evidence yet that America has hit ObamaBottom  whether at school, especially with the present feminist hysterics dictating college minds, or anywhere throughout the nation’s Obama sanctuary cities, or  at  CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, PBS, ABC, as well as ratings hungry Fox,  and the nation’s New York Times and Washington Post control over newsprint throughout urban America.

The first and last hope left for our once civilized United States of America still remains within the JudeoChristian  God’s family both human and religious…..a loving, civilized and responsible male father, a loving female mother raising loving, learned, Godfearing children in a traditional democratic society of well disciplined, self reliant, but Godfearing adults who know and care about their neighbors….

It is JudeoChristian Godfearing and learning knowledge we Americans  used to be  raised to rely on during our three centuries of human male growth in leadership and protection……until the anarchic revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, and its Obama/university  feminist and black Racism hate-America revolution revival of the past eight years of cultural collapse.

Most of all, America needs real fathers…..as suggested in the beautiful photo below:

PRAGER UNIVERSITY: IF THERE IS NO GOD, MURDER ISN’T WRONG!!

(WITHOUT GOOD, THERE IS NO BAD!   ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO!)
                                                      . . . . .
“Is murder wrong? How do you know? In this week’s video, Dennis Prager shows why, unless there is a God who says murder is wrong, believing murder is immoral is, well, just an opinion. And what happens when entire societies stop believing in God? As Dennis explains, the 20th century provides some tragic answers.

DENNIS PRAGER

If there is no God, murder isn’t wrong. You may think it’s wrong, but how do you know it’s wrong? As Dennis Prager explains, without God, all morality is mere opinion.

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!!!

Today’s Feminist-Feminazi Invasion of the University Mind

Presented by

CHRISTINA SOMMERS

Is there a gender wage gap? Are women paid less than men to do the same work? Christina Hoff Sommers, Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains the data.

Note from Glenn:  (Truth is not a value cherished by the animal in the human female.  Throughout her human struggle she has been programmed to act, react,  far more  by emotion including hysteria,  than  seeking and performing  the rational.   The animal prefers chatter over problem solving,  designed automatically to scream to seek safety, assistance, rather than growl, gesture or commit to silence to sense the Nature, degree,  and direction of the threat or problem.

The human animal  he, not the she, is still  the primary warrior, the primary defender, the primary inventor,  discoverer  animal by instinct…..even among so many Americans  of our present leftist, feminized era.

It is likely many, perhaps most of today’s most popular American propagandists, story tellers, and law makers are feminists of all colors, sex, shapes and sizes.  Despite obvious differences in build and other features, these folks insist there is no difference whatsoever among we human animals , male and female.

Therefore, they ‘fascist’ for equality….. and complain about a gender-wage gap.)

Please read the following Prager University  presentation regarding this  alleged gender-wage gap:
