In my garden


One of the greatest gifts that is present in every moment

is the flow of your breath.

Your breath is the mover;

You are the dancer.

– Shiva Rea

I thought I would start sharing photos from my garden again since it is a very important part of my life – my connection to nature. I recently shared this photo on Instagram and thought I would share it with those of you too.

I also thought it would be nice to pair two things that really inspire me, my garden and quotes. So I will share pictures from my garden with quotes that inspire me and give me pause.

Happy day my friend!


In the Garden today answer: My first sunflower


Yes as my lovely friend Joan pointed out, I named the image first sunflower so it loaded on the computer with the image.  Great so I spoiled my own surprise. I always buy sunflowers each year in seed form and imagine rows of sunflowers. Each year, I forget to plant them.

Well this year, rather late, I threw about six seeds in and I was blessed with 4 sunflowers. I like the color of this one. It’s small in terms of Sunflower size but still beautiful to look at.

Have a blessed day!


In the Garden today: What did I see?



Hello!  I thought I would give you a test today. The picture above was taken in my garden this morning. Can you guess what it is? I will reveal what it is on Wednesday.


Flowers in bloom

This time of year is one of my favorite.  I love the smell of the cool air in the morning and chimneys burning at night. I love all the fall decorations and I wait for the leaves to change all those pretty colors so we can take pictures and go for walks in the park.

Another fall favorite is seeing all the pretty chrysanthemums (mums) out in everyone’s yard.  I used to buy them each year and discard them at the end of the season. A few years ago, my father-in-law found out I did that and told me to put them in the ground so that I can enjoy them again and again. I am so glad I listened because they look gorgeous.

This plant is really special to me because it shares the same name as my sister, Bernadette.  She is a big sunshine in my life and how fitting that the flowers are yellow.  So when she isn’t available to talk to I can catch a glimpse of these beauties and am reminded how blessed I am to have such a wonderful sister.

Have a blessed day!
