Olde Well

"If gardeners will forget a little phrase, 'watering the plants' and think of 'watering the earth' under the plants, keeping up it's moisture content and gauging it's need, the garden will get on very well."
Henry Beston, Herbs and the Earth, 1935

While out on my walk the other day, I took a photo of the old well on the property.  I thought it looked especially pretty with the freshly fallen leaves floating on the surface.


  1. What a beautiful picture! It has a very magical feel to it! Super lovely!

  2. It is beautiful and I loved your quote.

    Best To You~M
