morning light...

inspiration
lingers around every corner...
to follow the dancing light and shadow...
shows me everything is constantly changing...
sitting in my office...working at the computer,
the light awakened me...xo

~the profound desire to reawaken our dormant senses...
I do my best living when my mind is turned off...it's like having the world come to you verse you trying to make everything happen...the best part is... i am so at peace...have a most excellent day...xo

too see...

~no garden {life} is without fault or failure, and patience,
flexibility and compromise are the
gardener's necessary virtues.


taken from the book(the gardeners life)

the poppy's are done blooming...but leave us with a most outstanding architecture for the garden...
I feel that way everyday, there is always something new and enchanting...xo

honoring imperfection...


"making some repairs...
but honoring the beauty
of imperfection."


the house painting project is going pretty smoothly...I just have to remember she's
pretty old and has some tender spots...like the south facing balcony, she will need a couple new pieces... oh yes deciding on the color of her coat..it took awhile, i finally let my intuition be in charge and choose the color "winter garden" yes that's the name....xo
