I am quite the amateur, I know. Compared to Grizz and Wanda - my goodness. I did, however, want to elevate the mood of my blog a bit given the depth and intensity of the last two posts. Our garden, yard, flowers are also "truth" - life giving parts of my world that sustain me and bring me great joy.
The center, top - is along the side of our house. The top left? I wanted you all to see my herb pot. The clay pot in the front is over flowing with mint, basil and parsley. My sister made up the herb garden pot for me for Mother's Day. Nice, huh? The first photo is a close-up of the herb-garden. The daisy? The first that bloomed this season!! And the yellow flower? There are many, many of them as you can see. Please, can you tell me what they are called?? :-)
We so enjoy our garden and all that it offers in sight, scent, and a play ground for the birds, and the bees, and the butterflies and the deer which eat some of the flowers. There are statues and signs and stones and a cart and a painted vase placed about, as well. It is so colorful and full with life and offerings. :-)
We love our simple,humble home and we know how blessed we are. The pond out front is a habitat for wild life and turtles and frogs and fish and the heron and geese and ducks. The brook that surrounds us feeds the pond and maintains the balance and flow for life. Very much like a metaphor for the sources that flow life in to each of us. We don't fuss a lot with nature rather we align with it. And in that way the natural beauty with all it's perfect imperfections is realized - right before our very wondrous eyes.
Peace, love and nature to you all
