Staying in Focus: A Rain-Washed Garden

Garden quote of the day:  No two gardens are the same.  No two days are the same in one garden.  ~Hugh Johnson

Ready for another virtual morning walk in the garden?  The sun has just come up and it is going to be a  beautiful day. Feel the cool air as you walk outside. An overnight shower has preceded a cold front and the temperature is much cooler than yesterday. In addition to nurturing the garden , the shower has left droplets of water which shine like diamonds sprinkled on the blossoms and leavesIMG_0840. Everything looks fresh, rain-washed and healthy. As the sun rises, it sets the dewdrops on the grass aglow.

Listen to the birds as they fly from feeder to nest to feed their babies. Life is unfolding all around you. Take a minute to celebrate it and the new morning.  Take some deep breaths and relax for a few moments before beginning your busy day. Carry the peace and beauty of your garden walk with you throughout the day!

What’s up next: Yesterday, my friend, Debbi and I took a morning walk at Lake Wheeler and a stroll through the farmer’s market. Tune in  to future posts to join us!
