Soul Food #93
Almost any garden,
if you see it at just the right moment,
can be confused with paradise.
quote / saying by Henry Mitchell
A garden is a place
to feel the beauty of solitude.
quote / saying by Bob Barnes
Les abeilles butinent..les fleurs charment.. le soleil brille~
C'est un des plus beaux temps..
Some of you may remember our Muskoka chairs in the snow:) It's a nice change..I enjoy every season..but green hits the spot after a while:)
And signs of blue of course..
Talk about anticipation.. re the above:)
The blues and mauves and pinks and greens predominate..with some whites...at this time of year..but soon all the colors will shine..the lavender will permeate the air.. as the peonies.. and geraniums and honeysuckles..
I truly love them all..the buds..the blooms..the bees.. the skies..the sunshine on my face~
From Columbines.. to Campanulas..to Clematis..and Irises.. Catmint..Korean Lilacs.. lilacs..Bleeding Hearts.. Hostas..Ferns..I appreciate my stroke of luck at having a plot of land to grow things..I am always grateful.
Gardens are a form of autobiography. ~Sydney Eddison, Horticulture magazine, August/September 1993
I hope you all have a space.. be it large or small..a pot..a balcony..a terrace..or even a hanging basket..to nurture and watch grow this summer~
Who knows who will grace you with their company and beauty~
