Gardens and Stars

A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in--what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.” 
- Victor Hugo



My friends most beautiful rose in Las Vegas
Thanks Deb





Gorgeous beautiful flowers
are food for our souls










The kiss of the  sun for pardon
The songs of the birds for mirth
There is no place closer to Heaven
than a garden here on Earth

Sunday is best spent with an open and loving heart
Enjoy this beautiful May day


Lavender plant


I love bamboo lilacs and lily of the valley
and all flowers

“Each day has a magical moment that 
helps us to change and sends us out to 
make our dreams come true."

I hope lovely surprises are coming your way
that makes this day a wonderful day for you!

~ Listen To The Garden ~
Every garden has a story, if we but stop and read
And turn the leaves most gently, our heart and soul to feed.
There's a mystery in petals, stamens, pistils, pods
Word, for word we read to find, the tender heart of God.
Turn every leaf and see, the veins, the pattern clear
Pause with thought to listen, His whispers you will hear.
Breathe in and murmur low, inhale the pungent, sweet
Then press the velvet softness, against your rosy cheek.
Look deep into the colour, the texture of each plant
Watch the insects all at work, the bee, the wasp, the ant
Sit, feel the breeze, its secrets, softly sway
For every garden has a story, God's unfolding every day.
