A glimpse of  plants in my garden, in glorious colour and textures. From the purple spikes atop a plant with slender green leaves [top], the tiny campanulas, the tiny yellow flowers to the almost velvety leaves of the  silver artemisia, it’s a feast for the eyes.

The scented geranium has lost its pink flowers, but the wooly thyme still smells as sweet as ever. The scents in my garden are gentle, but welcome. Today I will take some time to sit and appreciate the gifts of my garden and the One who made them.

    Hi Carolyn:
    Your writing is very poetic, and your garden
    sublime. Wish I had a thumb as green as yours!
    It was wonderful to hear from you.
    You sound productive and successful in your endeavors.

    miss you,
    Heather 🙂
