On May 28, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued 12 new stamps featuring garden life. "To own a bit of ground, to scratch it with a hoe, to plant seeds, and watch the renewal of life--this is the commonest delight of the race, the most satisfactory thing a man can do." Written in 1870 by Charles Dudley Warner, these words on gardening undoubtedly express the opinion of many who've spent relaxing hours tending patches of flora. Since the 19th century, small home gardens have become prevalent throughout many countries worldwide, and gardening continues to be a popular pastime in the 21st century. As Thomas Jefferson himself said, "No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth...and no culture comparable to that of the garden...But though an old man, I am but a young gardener."
