Olivia Laing

These lines from her recent piece are beautiful. Speaks of the same – love, from a different end. Any mention of garden gets me! Ours exist no more.

Our best collaboration has been the garden. In a way, I suppose it’s the model of our relationship — carefully enriched and tended by us both, an explosion of flowers followed by quiet fallow periods. We’re in it for life, this marriage, though that might not be the longest stretch of time. We both know what love costs, and what it’s worth. We both know that it doesn’t always come and will most certainly go, but for now, for us, love is the world.
