"There is no spot of ground, however arid, bare or ugly, that cannot be tamed into such a state as may give an impression of beauty and delight." -Gertrude Jekyll

this quote reminded me of our visit to the Butchart Gardens in Canada.  The gardens were originally the remains of a cement quarry where Mr Butchart worked. His wife used the Barren remains of the dugout limestone and began to bring in tons of topsoil to use to plant flowers, bushes, is now an amazing world renown garden!
