Now is the Time ~ To Work in the Garden

Like beautiful outdoor churches,
gardens encourage our spiritual natures.
They soothe our troubles and
provide stress-free havens.
They open our eyes and hearts
to growth and beauty.
They ground us.

"The best place to seek God is in the garden."  ~  George Bernard Shaw

Until next time.....


  1. As always, Deanna...I am in awe over your photos. I just read all the posts I've missed and I have to say..."You are such a blessing." My heart has been hurting just thinking about my daughter moving away, but as I looked through your blog, I started to smile...then laugh (that future plumber comment really got me!). Anyway...just wanted to say thank you for all the work you put into blogging. You have a way with your words and photos that makes everything better. Glad you had a good time on your trip...and glad you're back! :)

  4. Your flowers are so lovely. Thanks for sharing them with us. I also saw that you won over on Kims blog. Congrats to you my friend...

  5. I love that quote. That's exactly how I feel. What pretty photos these are. I really love the lily of the valley...I can just imagine how wonderful it smells. I haven't been blogging much lately so I'm going to look and see what you've been doing :)

  6. I just planted a few knockout roses last year in my garden...can't wait for their blooms to burst forth. I think we are a bit behind you tho, I just have tons of buds at the moment. I'm getting my camera ready tho :)

  7. Gardens truly are a wonderful place to reflect...I love your ending quote. You're photographs are so lovely...I can almost smell the flowers.
