How true. In our world today everything is so fast-paced and stressful. We all spend too much time in front of the TV, on the computer or our smartphones. I am fully aware of my own addiction to these devices. So when I get in the garden, I truly treasure my time there. It really does awaken all of the senses.
I am especially excited to enjoy my time in the garden this summer. Where last year meant shoveling soil, digging trenches, and pouring concrete barriers, this year we will be able to enjoy our yard from a lounger and with a glass of iced tea in hand. Ahhhh…. relaxation and enjoyment after two summers of hard work.
I get so much pleasure and satisfaction from finally sitting back and taking the time to enjoy the fruits of our labour. It hasn’t happened very often since we embarked on home ownership in 2011. Over the next few months, I’m hoping for a deep tan and a number of books checked off the “to read” list.
After coming home early today on account of a stubborn headache threatening migraine, I had a long nap and then was encouraged to get out in the yard for a bit of fresh air. I couldn’t help but take a jaunt around, checking in on all my plants and taking photos along the way.
Wishing you sunshine and a lovely weekend.
