Garden Spot

This morning presented itself a little differently... cool and 
overcast, possibly a few light showers, and wind from the 
north/northeast. I thought this day still held possibilities to
work my garden/landscape spaces. Yesterday was picture 
perfect and I certainly reaped the benefits of gardening for 
mental health. I expected the same for today...nope didn't 
happen! So after a walk, after FaceTime with Ben (son), 
Ethan (grandson), and Sam (the Pug), after lighthouse-
keeping duties, I planned an afternoon for picture editing 
and my blog. Here I sit gazing out the window looking for 
a way to be outside. 

Procrastination is, hands down, our 
favorite form of self-sabotage.

Moving on...

When all your garden/landscape chores are done for the day, 
do you take the time later to wander around your outdoor 
space? Do you appreciate the effort? Do you admire the 
beauty you've created?

How lovely the silence of growing things.

A garden/flower/landscaped part of your yard is a commitment;
it's physical, expensive, challenging and requires dedicated time.

Motivation drives us to get outdoors, pick up that piece of
garden equipment and work, and we all have our reasons 
for sprucing up the yard or putting in a garden. 

And whether you're a seasoned gardener or a non-gardener
enjoying the fruits of your labor has its reward. Come-on a 
little smile, it feels sooo good!!!
