    My husband, not being a gardening fan, often asks me what I enjoy so much about working the soil....

    The other day, as I out working in the yard, my mind was going over several issues, trying to problem solve. The problem solving turned into a bit of a fretting session. I looked up to catch my breath, and at once I noticed the beautiful setting sun. Its rays outlined every curve of the mahogany tree up the street, and it's golden hues brightened up all the plants in the bed below me. I looked up and saw the palms fonds blowing in the evening breeze, and felt the wind rustle the tendrils that had fallen out of my ponytail. I heard a bird, and saw it fly by swiftly. I imagine it was on its way to nest down for the night. I realized how small my little world and all my thoughts were in comparison to this great earth we live on. My thoughts settled. I felt at peace. All I could think of was "all is well". At once I felt grounded and hopeful.

    .....This is one of the many reasons why I garden.

    Originally from Iowa, I now live in Miami, FL with my husband and 4 children.

    Sharing my love for gardening with like-minded people is pure joy!
