Liberty Hyde Bailey Quote

To people who grumbled at the weather he recommended a garden, as the best of remedies for that commonest of melancholies, for there is no weather that did not suit some plant. In the hottest and driest time the portulacas are burning red in the sand. In cool and cloudy weather the soft morning-glories remain open until noon. When the soil is soaked with rain the irises are in their glory.
