Debbie Knitz, pro-skier turned pro-gardener was quoted as saying:
“A garden can be a container, a garden can be a yard; a garden can be any green space that is filled with flowers and energy.”
When asked why being around green things gives her so much pleasure, Debbie responded, “I consider it one of my spiritual connections. My mother’s always giving me a tough time about not attending church on Sunday’s, but that’s the only day I have to play in my garden.
One day, we were walking around my garden and my mom said, ‘you know, we really should be in church today.’ And I said, ‘you’re in my church. This is my temple. Do you think I can create this alone?'”
