A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-LA-MARNE-ROSE-BLOOM

She's Coming Back Several weeks back, I noticed my beloved La Marne rose, the one that touched my heart when we were looking at this house some eleven plus years back, had some damage from the winter's harsh ice storms. You could tell she was an old rose by the size of her trunks and she reached over seven feet tall. I have not done much to … [Read more...]

Life Lessons in the Garden   Dearest and I worked in our garden the first official day of summer. The garden can be such a source for learning.

Awareness of Time

A-DELIGHTSOME-LIFE-PROVERBS-4-23

This is going to be a very personal post. I'm not sure exactly when my thought life began to take on this extra note, but at some point I have become more and more aware of time. Time in the sense that each day truly needs to make a difference in some way in my or in someone's life.  I've been thinking more about how I govern … [Read more...]
