Patience








Thanks to all for the words of support for Bruce yesterday. Now we wait for 4 weeks to see if he gets the job. I was thinking about waiting and patience and thought how much we learn from nature. Yesterday I spent the whole day in my beloved garden. Each year the different plants that come back bring me a new surprise . Some that I thought would never make it or that do very little the first and even second year after you have planted them come back several years later to surprise you with their growth and beauty. It just takes time, care and patience . I am not a very patient person in general. I am known to leap out of the passenger seat of a car when it is still pulling into the parking space . But when it comes to my garden....  that is different story . Today I would like to share with you some images from my garden and once again say nature is the best teacher and artist off all .

Can I just come and hang out with you in your beautiful garden Julie?

Oh, you make me so homesick for New Mexico! We left behind the most amazing xeric garden that we created from an empty lot. Aside from our friends, that was the hardest thing to leave behind. Your garden looks gorgeous!! Hugs, Silke

Beautiful pictures and quite a beautiful garden. Don't you just love it, when the plants intertwine and flowers of one plant are among the leaves of another? It reminds me of lace...

Your garden is so lush and tranquil! I would love to sit out there and dream. It is obvious it has been tended with love. I have a black thumb and always say I could kill a cactus. LOL!! Still thinking good thoughts for Bruce! Love, Jamie

What a beautiful garden! I'm hoping mine will look something like that in years to come. At the moment I'm planning a beautiful potager, then I'll move on to the rest of it. Thanks for the inspiring images!
