I can’t think of many things more satisfying than a garden.  They bring pleasure in so many shapes and colors, not to mention how they awaken and delight our senses.

Sometimes I can’t help but marvel in awe at the unique beauty that comes from the soil and a tiny seed.

The earth gives in abundance and holds nothing back.

Each bloom is a performer on a stage.  Some perform alone, and some in a chorus.  Do you ever wonder what flowers would sound like if they could sing?
