Ever changing and never finished
Our gardens are a place of peace and tranquility. Something we can do to help us slow down, take a moment to relax and realize that there is beauty all around us. From one moment to the next, a garden is ever changing and never finished, an on-going project that can last a lifetime.
Yet most of us do not place our lives in the same category as our gardens. Our lives are to hectic with work and errands, much to full of hustle and bustle. Not to mention the ugliness that springs up all around us. Have you heard the neighbors yelling at each other lately? What about watching the late night news telling of the latest crime spree? Then there is that traffic jam you were just stuck in for over an hour.
Have you ever looked at your kids and said something like... "the older you get the more of a monster you become!"? They are ever changing, different from one moment to the next.
Honestly, our lives are exactly like our gardens. Always changing, never finished and forever ongoing yet filled with beauty at any given moment if only we take the time to look. Exactly the same as our gardens.
Shade garden project started in fall of 2005. Lots more work to do here.
The basic downspout project will start this coming weekend, soon to become a self-watered rock garden.

Yeah my thoughts exactly MC. I try to avoid getting into a fuss as much as I can. I like to relax and observe all that is going on around me. One of the reasons I started up this site was to do something where I wouldn't have someone barking orders down at me and where I could broaden my knowledge by meeting others from all over the world. That plan is working out better than I could have imagined.
