I never knew how much work went into a garden nor did I know how good it makes you feel to do so & to see the beauty of nature. It is a physical & spiritual experience for sure!
Sowing This Week-----------------------
Thank you Heather.
Bird Bath Job....I Mean Work!!
Love the backdrop of the Bay du Vin Island in the background.
Some background on the fountain---in 2003 we were doing an elevator tradeshow & I wanted a soothing sound in our booth, so a fountain was needed. It was hard to find one that would be appropriate & I knew what I wanted when I would see it. There were so many fountains with cherubs but those are so sad to me as they were designed in the Victorian era to soothe mothers that had lost their babies to childhood deceases. They were to represent their babies in heaven as angels, to me I see dead babies... So to find these beautiful playful boys like these, were just what I wanted & next month I'll show you the fountain if it makes it here!
Looking at this picture I really should have raked the lawn! Sow much to do Sew little time! lol
This is the otherside of the path, it to will have lavender. The center will have wood chips or black stone, I'm not sure yet. Time & money will tell. lol
Funny True Story--------
Before we venture into the side garden, I must tell you this story because it still makes me chuckle out loud whenever I think of that morning.
It was my arrival last month, the week that Mitchell & Nicole were visiting. He made Nicole a morning coffee & when she took her first sip she yell out loud "Mitch, it tastes like soap, yuk!"
Oh my, the first thing I thought of was my dish washing habits as I have no dishwasher. It's done with Jesus & I technique . First I wash them in hot soapy water & then rinse them with hot water & let Jesus do the drying. Did I not rinse the cup well enough?
I asked Mitchell ''Where is the sugar you used?" It's that little one next to the coffee maker he replied.
That's my salt cellar I told him! OH that explained everything. He told me that he thought it was a little sugar holder with a cute little ceramic spoon & it was next to the coffee maker...which has the stove to the other side. We all had a great laugh over this & I still do!
Flowers & Birds--------------
Wow that was hours of work & I secured the rose bush to the pole. Can't wait to see colour from the lilies but that will probably be next year.
I dug out an area to the side for some more lilies.
Thank you for stopping by today. And my you to take time to find your peace, in the garden.
