Time to take a step back and enjoy the garden!
I am so happy with the finished results, but especially grateful for a very special person who has put in so much time to build me this little piece of paradise I've wanted for so long.
I have several projects in line, but right now I want to sit, relax and plan....until I get some real time off.
Yes, this year I decided to painfully leave my house, my chickens, my dogs and my life for a few days... although all will be in good trusting hands there's still a feeling of separation anxiety inside, knowing I will be so far :(
This year I am visiting family and friends I haven't seen for some time. I am really looking forward to re-discovering my home, to feel the air and see the lush vegetation I miss so much, so trying to relax right now is a top priority. Let's see how this goes...
- Cecile's Country Garden
- I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*
