HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hello dear friends in the garden,

Yes, I feel I live in paradise, even after Hurricane Hermine and Hurricane Matthew!  But I bet I am not the only person who is entering 2017 with some trepidation.  I also have some disgust for the way that so many people,  show their disregard for other persons’ choices, views and stances.  I do not care what side you take, there is never an excuse for anything but civil discourse.  And stop pointing the finger at the other side, no matter which side that is.  Point it at yourself in the mirror.  If you can’t take that first step toward understanding and healing and changing, do not expect anyone else to do the same.  We are all in this together.

 

So, what to do about it?  Get in the garden!  Let’s not lose our connection with Nature and let’s not stop enjoying her wisdom and the peace we can find through her!  For those who are religious, look for God there.  For those that find their spiritual selves within, or nowhere at all,  come outside and find some new voices in the garden.

 

You know I am a Hudson River Valley lady, born and bred, but 3 years in the South, and I am positively thrilled to be able to get out in the garden every single day!   Snow?  What is that?   Look what is blooming in Savannah right now. Thunbergia Hibiscus Did I mention I am crazy for camellias?   Camellia

Happy New Year all!  Let’s be positive and let’s work to have our best voices heard.  And always keep our hearts and minds open in the Garden!

    Beautiful photos of the beautiful flowers that you have, we too hardly ever have snow, we have flowers but not as exotic as yours!

    Happy New Year, Jayne! I couldn’t agree more. Everything we do reflects who we are and when you’re rude and unkind, it’s not only sad for those on the receiving end, but also those actions have a way of splashing back on the person hurling the negative energy. My garden provides the same joy and solace, it’s my go to for stress!
    xo,
