“symbiosis”
by Dorothee Lang

in between tulip bulbs
the question:
am i growing this garden
or is this garden
growing me?

We received this poem and lovely tulip photos from Dorothee Lang, a writer and editor in Stuttgart, Germany who responded to our call for images and stories about the spirituality of gardening.

Spring is still in its infancy and we’re eager to hear from more of you. How are you spiritually nourished by growing things from the soil? What do you learn from tending to your garden plot that you carry forward into your lived life? Send us images of gardens you’ve nourished. Over the coming weeks, we’ll continue to feature your contributions on this blog.

Beautiful photos. Symbiosis indeed, Dorothee! Tulips are wonderful lessons for us: delicate in appearance but sturdy in adverse weather.
