It will be two weeks soon .. two weeks since I have been in my garden soaking in those healing vibrations and feeling its life literally .. so many life forms that occupy my little piece of Eden.
I can only just step on the deck lately without horrible pain or that god awful feeling that my knee will give in and down I go .. dignity and body .. so far so good.
I snap away with pictures to keep some kind of connection going ..
The changing sun values in the morning and evening are more than evident now .. my beloved Sumac fruits are deep deep red .. the birds will be enjoying those tasty morsels soon too !I love the afternoon light playing in the garden ... high lighting favored spots .. drawing your eyes to different areas .. hearing the crickets gives me sparks of delight .. I can't explain it .. I'm sure many of us , way before we were adults and gardeners .. loved hearing them chirp .. those and the peepers which I never get to hear any more sadly .. I so wish I could support them in my garden but surviving the roaming cats in the neighborhood .. well they just couldn't .. could they?
Brilliant dots of Black Eyed Susans are spread through out the garden .. they just make you smile whether you want to or not .. don't they ? Who can resist them !
I keep checking this view to see how my garden babies are doing .. so wishing I could be down there fussing around .. picking out weeds .. making mental notes on swapping plants around .. putting more mulch down .. all those millions of garden jobs we do almost without thinking ?
My neighbor's gorgeous pear tree .. the ram rod straight tree that is a bench mark to many of my pictures in every season highlighting my sunrises .. you would think that was a big enough job for it to do ? But no ... it actually has delicious pears to offer as well .. how can you beat that ?
This is my view from here ......
I miss my garden so many times on a daily basis it makes me ache .. I just want this poor body to heal so I can go play in my little piece of heaven .. soon it will be bulb planting time before I get my second wind ? .. then on with the fun .. you know what I mean .. HALLOWEEN !!!
