      "To see a World in a grain of sand,
      And a Heaven in a wildflower,
      Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
      And Eternity in an hour."
      Fragment from "Auguries of Innocence" 1805
      William Blake (1757-1827)

      Thank you for sending this beautiful verse. Perhaps the community garden quote was inspired by Blake. See the larger view of the garden in the next photo.--A.V. Grimes
