I don't exercise...



but I do garden. That can make you sweat. All you gardeners know that. I love to make things grow. My son takes a lot of care so I don't work anymore. Sometimes I really miss the regular contact with people, but I love the time I spend with my son more. Because I'm home I need something to help fill the time and yet be something that I love. Gardening is that love. It's almost spiritual for me. I feel things very deeply in the garden. I think deep thoughts in the garden. I form friendships in the garden. Landon also loves the time he spends in the garden. I think he feels deeply, thinks deeply and forms friendships there as well. Hope you enjoy the pics of our garden.

of course i remember you! certainly not a person i could ever forget! and by the way your not that old, i keep telling my parents that too. sunny florida has its perks but the summers here are so unpredictable. one year it rains every day at 3 pm like clockwork and another year it hardly rains at all and then im praying for rain. certainly makes planting flowers a challenge, then again growing flowers has always been a challenge for me. lol was not blessed with a green thumb like you and my grandpa....lol....

Your garden is lovely. I love the flowers and birds in the garden but I leave the gardening part to my husband as I tend to kill plants. I am very good at pulling weeds though:)

Those roses covering the white timber arch look idyllic - and I bet their perfume is enough to make you swoon with delight... Oh, I can hardly wait to smell the roses in my garden once again.... your garden looks absolutely beautiful and I hope you will be able to show us some photos of it in due course...With warm wishes, V xx

Oh June, your garden is absolutely beautiful! What a lovely place to be in, both for you and for your son. And I totally agree with you about the way you feel about gardens and gardening. I just wish we here in Norway did get a few more months to enjoy it all (snow is still very much the dominant feature in my garden).

Thank you for your lovely comment in my blog. It was a pleasure to read, just as it has been a pleasure to visit you pretty blog.
