I realized something yesterday as I was tending to my garden. I could get lost there for a very, very long time!
I meandered through the yard, pulling the miscellaneous weeds, nipping back unruly plants, and deadheading flowers. I inhaled the smells from the roses, the lavender and the herbs. It was invigorating, and relaxing, all at one time.
The cool breeze blowing gently through the trees, the beauty of the flowers and plants, even the dirt smelled good! 🙂
Yep, I was lost in this wonderous place. The hours went by… no need to hurry, no feeling of stress or anxiety.
Just me, and my garden….a glorious place to be.
“In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe. I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels.” ~Dodinsky
