The gardens that make us happiest flourish
because we have taken the time to make sure

they feed our souls and fill a special place in our lives.

Sometimes you have to think about
what you really want from your garden ...
once the beds are laid out and the rose bushes planted.

Just beautiful! I need a pick-me-up today. I started reading a blog where the blogger was tired of blogging and I just fell into my black hole when I commiserated with the post...great to come here to bring me back to flowers and good thoughts!

Hi Sunday Girl ~ Thank you. How are things in your neck of the woods? Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if I don't chat with you again.

Good morning Cameron ~ Thank you and I'm glad my post picked up your flagging spirits. Things can send us spiraling quickly all too often.

Even though I'm a newbie at blogging, I can see where one can get tired of it. That's why I don't do it every day.

We all need time off from 'things', we need to be inspired so that we can inspire others. So, take a day or two off, and try not to over extend yourself.

Enjoy your grilled turkey and cornbread dressing, your family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday.

These photos are a pleasure to look at! Thanks for posting them! The lady Cameron is talking about is someone who sent me a welcome message to at Blotanical, so maybe Cameron's comments uplifted her, because she said something about hoping to see me around.
