In my Garden

The kiss of the sun for pardon,The song of the birds for mirth,One is nearer God's heart in a gardenThan anywhere else on earth.~Dorothy Frances Gurney, "Garden Thoughts

It is a comfortable garden.No fancy planting here.Even the moles have helped, shovelling seeds underground so that they pop up in unexpected places

Snails live here in peace too.There is enough to go around.

I would like to have ducks to help with the growing snail population.But the resident paws would not tolerate that.

Large Rainspiders make their hammocks in the Agapanthas and only visit us indoors when they need to tell us that there is rain on the way.

I know every corner of this garden.It wraps around this aging house like a green shawl around an old lady's shoulders.
I am so fortunate to be here.


  1. Haha, Mom - Lol!!
    Agreed, our garden is v pretty :)

  2. Your garden is lovely... I see The Cape in it! And I love how you are connected with all who live in it too. Made me smile.
    Your fairies are on their way, very excited little ones they are!
    Blessings and magic,
