I have just come in from weeding the front garden, listening to a lone crow talking away, calling his friends no doubt, and I am feeling very calm and grounded. I do love the garden that I planned out the front of the house and it is all staring to grow wonderfully now, I am delighted that we will be staying to watch it grow and blossom, attracting the birds, I made certain when choosing the plants that all that I selected were natural food for the local honey eating birds.
I am so excited about the back garden now as well, did not take me long to get inspired, I was wide awake at two o'clock this morning wandering around outside, I feel I require a project, it will keep me busy and give me a lot to do as well maintaining it, I feel it will give me what I require to take my mind off being somewhere else. I have always loved gardening, natural therapy for the soul.
Theme will be tropical around the swimming poolside of the house, with a scented garden around the back, on the other side of the house will be bougainvilleas along the fence with geraniums in window boxes, perhaps with a few herbs too. Although before all this happens I must mulch again, as you can see the first lot is very dry now.
I have a vision in my head, and I am all geared up, just in time for my second operation! Never mind it will give me an incentive to get back in shape. I feel much better now that we have made a decision, and I am going to put all I have into creating a garden and a home that wraps around me when we enter the door, a sanctuary of peace and tranquility where the world simply disappears and relaxation and serenity prevail.
