No End Beginning…

A lazy spring day, long lunch with a friend, the perfect vacation – things we wish wouldn’t end. It’s hard for us humans – endings. Simple things like a beautiful day are one thing but the death of a sweet friend? Unless…it’s not the…

Planted Where?

Not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I love containers with green and colors flowing over. What you and I don’t see is the spidery roots warm and cozy down in the soil. Drinking up moisture and nutrients and anchoring…
