I took my coffee out to the patio this drizzly Saturday morning. As I sat and watched the humming-
birds and cardinals come for breakfast, and listened to the sounds of the water hitting the rocks in the pond, I felt such peace. The sky was cloudy, and I suppose there are some that would call this a dreary day, but for me-it was a perfect morning.
For some reason, I love to see a garden on a foggy, drizzly day. After such a hot June, I know my plants are really happy with an overcast sky and rain!
I sometimes wonder why I bother with gardening-do you ever think about that? My answer comes pretty quickly though--I find serenity in my garden. I solve problems in the garden-and I sometimes create problems in the garden! :)
And on this drizzly Saturday morning, I find content-
ment in the garden.
The heat will return, the rain will stop, plants will come and go, and summer will turn into fall. But for this moment in time, I feel such peace.
I hope you all have a peaceful, beautiful weekend. I am taking a brief break from the blogging world. I will be back soon!
"Working in the garden gives me a profound feeling of inner peace. Nothing here is in a hurry. There is no rush toward accomplishments, no blowing of trumpets. Here is the great mystery of life and growth. Everything is changing, growing, aiming at something, but silently, unboastfully, taking it's time."
