An Early Memory

<<My earliest memory of my dad is probably of him somewhere in a garden covered in dirt, somewhere hot, a tropical garden, in jeans, khakis covered in dirt just continuously planting trees. I think that’s what I thought he did for the first seven years of my life. I was completely unaware that he had anything to do with music. I came home one day from school after being chased by kids singing Yellow Submarine, and I didn’t understand why. It just seemed surreal: why are they singing that song to me? I came home and I freaked out on my dad: “Why didn’t you tell me you were in The Beatles?” And he said, “Oh, sorry. Probably should have told you that.”>>

George Harrison in The Garden

“Sometimes I feel like I’m actually on the wrong planet, and it’s great when I’m in my garden, but the minute I go out the gate I think: ‘What the hell am I doing here?’”

George Harrison

 

“Being a gardener and not hanging out with anyone and just being home, that was pretty rock ‘n’ roll, you know?”

Dhani Harrison

 

George Harrison’s autobiography, I, Me, Mine, is dedicated “to gardeners everywhere”
