We have inherited an incredibly beautiful and complex garden, but
the trouble is that we have been appallingly bad gardeners.
We have not bothered to acquaint ourselves with the simplest
principles of gardening.
By neglecting our garden, we are storing up for ourselves,
in the not very distant future, a world catastrophe as bad as any
atomic war, and we are doing it with all the bland complacency of an
idiot child chopping up a Rembrandt with a pair of scissors.
