I wish I could claim responsibility for this, but the flowers in our back yard are the bounty of someone else’s efforts. Due to the thoughtful plotting of the original owners of our home, each spring and summer we are treated to a sprinkling of beauty throughout our yard. Like a quiet guest that drops in for a lovely visit just when I most need a little burst of color, this clematis climbs its way up from the bottom level to our upper deck just below the grill every year. And I am always brightened by its presence.
Along with the flowers I want to share with you from my yard in the coming days, I’m going to post some words that my good friend, Karla, has sprinkled throughout her home. While visiting there last weekend, I felt so happy and relaxed, and I know a big part of that is because she works hard, like the gardener who lived here before us, to create a nurturing environment for her family and guests. Well, it’s working, and I want to pass all of this beauty on to you.
Enjoy your day!
