Happy Sunday

This is where my soul belongs. A garden serenaded by birds, the grass is clad in a new gorgeous gown; woven in life green, and leaves and blooms are budding and unfolding almost instantly before my very own eyes...
The transformation is almost unbelievable. My delphiniums are growing like crazy, gorgeous lilies are coming up as is the purple Salvia and the Shasta Daisy, Columbine, Japanese ferns, Hostas, Korean lilacs with their intoxicating perfume and Sweet Williams everywhere! My peonies are also coming up, and oh yes, there's my creeping Charlie peeking out from under the roses and Candytuft... greens on butterfly bushes and purple on Russian sage... and the roses... oh the roses!
I so love this little green space of mine; this ever present life energy of plants, water, birds and earth... I cannot have enough of it and I'm practically living here all day long. If I could, I would sleep here too... Nature surely has a way of lifting me up out of myself and into communion with my Creator. This feeling is the heart of my garden experience and the basis for all it's done here...
"If I keep a green bough in my heart the singing bird will come."
- Chinese proverb


  1. I am too love the garden I dug and weeded all day I had lovely dirt under my finger nails. I am completely exausted and full of joy from working in my gardens.

  2. Just gorgeous, serene and beautiful Cielo, your garden is a treasure, you've done a wonderful job, I can see all the love you put in it...and yes, nature is a communion on earth with our Creator.
    Very beautiful! Lots of hugs. FABBY

  3. Gorgeous garden photos, Cielo. Thank-you for sharing!

  4. I love how your spirit is so connected to everything around are so blessed and you pass that blessing on to us. What a neat old Chinese proverb-one I had never heard. xo Diana

  5. Dearest Cielo,

    Well, you took pictures of your 'Cielo'; what a lusch and gorgeous garden you have! Your climate is far better than ours for growing perfect blooms!
    Enjoy them and have a great Sunday!

    Lots of love,

    Your garden is beautiful and I totally understand how you feel about it!


  7. Hi Cielo,

    Your spring garden looks lovely. The white snowballs are so pretty. Unfortunately they did not do well in my garden this year.

    Happy new week.

  12. Cielo,
    Your words express my feelings perfectly when you said,
    "Nature surely has a way of lifting me up out of myself and into communion with my Creator. This feeling is the heart of my garden experience and the basis for all it's done here...."
    How they resonate with me!
