Selia,

Your garden is so beautiful! The flowers are just beautiful and love the pond too!
Can't wait to see more photos of your home!

Dear Selia, what a beautiful garden, I can see why you do not want to move. I would not want to either. xoxox Clarice

Dear Selia,

How beautiful your garden is! I would have a hard time leaving such beauty, too.

I'm sorry that your computer was having problems, and hope that you'll be able to take lots of beautiful new photos to make up for the ones you lost.

A blessed spring to you,

Marqueta

Dearest Selia,

I am so HAPPY to see a post from you my dear, sweet friend!!! How wonderful you have decided not to move. I know you were not looking forward to that. I am glad you and Tim like all of the changes you have been making to your home. I look forward to seeing your kitchen. Your garden is beautiful!!!! Oh, the clematis climbing up your bird feeder is gorgeous. I love the stones that surround your flower beds. Everything is so pretty and blooming so beautifully! I love the peony, the iris and lamb's ears… thank you for sharing them with me, mine are about to bloom! Your pond is wonderful and I love the placement of the flowers around it. The roses will be lovely with the lamb's ear. That is how mine are too! :) Miss Millie looks quite content guarding your seedlings! Your raised beds look wonderful too. I am so glad you are enjoying working in your garden. I feel just as you do! I love the beautiful poem you shared, it is one of my favorites. I am so happy you will be blogging again! You have been missed! Love you, Paula

~Walk in Beauty~

  • "...I want first of all...to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact - to borrow from the language of the saints - to live "in grace" as much of the time as possible...By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony...I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace from which I could function and give as I was meant to in the eye of God..." by Anne Morrow Lindbergh Gift from the Sea

~A Garden of Thoughts~

  • THE Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And He set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. So near to the peace of Heaven, That the hawk might nest with the wren, For there in the cool of the even God walked with the first of men. And I dream that these garden-closes With their shade and their sun-flecked sod And their lilies and bowers of roses, Were laid by the hand of God. The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,-- One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth. For He broke it for us in a garden Under the olive-trees Where the angel of strength was the warden And the soul of the world found ease. ~~ by Dorothy Frances Gurney~~
  • To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony. - William Henry Channing
  • Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust
  • There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. ~Mirabel Osler
