Oh, yes...gardening is all of those things for me, too. Lovely. Your photos, your words, and your garden.

A million times I've wished that I were more gardening-savvy! I tried a few years ago and things didn't go quite as planned. My husband and I are thinking of trying again this year. Wish us luck...and ENJOY :)

YES!
(shouted from a mountaintop, arms reaching for sky, voice dancing above valleys, celebrating your words, these images, and the conenctions in between...)

Country Girl said...

I am glad for you. My husband enjoys it as well. Me, not so much, unless it's flowers.

Wildflower Studio (Michelle Dransart) said...

Yes, it is! And your love seeps out of every image!
