From the NY Times yesterday, Milko Morichetti, Italian art restorer,

Without the culture that connects us to our territory, we lose our identity. There may not be many famous artists or famous monuments here, but before anything, Italians feel proud of the culture that comes from their own towns, their own regions. And when we restore a church or a museum, it gives us hope. This is not just about preserving museum culture. For us, it's about a return to normalcy.
Above, last week in Richmond, VA's Museum of History. Understanding Morichetti's words. Living a gardening life is my normalcy. What lifts you?
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
