Finding sanctuary and sanity in the garden

September 02, 2004

What a pleasure to read Christy Hobart's "A Family Sanctuary" (Aug. 19). I am an avid gardener, and my interest was further piqued when I read that she had a seriously ill child. I audibly gasped when I realized that her son has tuberous sclerosis; my 11-year-old son also has TS.

Hobart's discussion of her garden -- what it means to her and her family, how it adds to their lives -- helped crystallize for me many of my own thoughts and feelings about gardening -- and coping.
