Thought for the Weekend


I have found, through years of practice, that people garden
in order to make something grow; to interact with nature;
to share, to find sanctuary, to heal, to honor the earth,
to leave a mark. 
Through gardening, we feel whole as we
make our personal work of art upon our land.

Sunday afternoon at Leu Gardens


Our local botanical garden in Orlando is open but its Leu House Museum is closed due to Covid-19.

It is real quiet on this hot Sunday afternoon. We hear insects, see some butterflies and at the lookout by lake Rowena the turtles and fish move around lazily in the water. All other critters are on their afternoon nap time.

Feeling watched


Relaxing in the garden, watching the beautiful clouds drift by, I can't help but wonder if I am being watched
