My Life is really in the Garden

Enjoying and sharing the daily discoveries of the beautiful nature that surrounds me in my lovely garden and everywhere else!

Today .. I spent lots of time in my garden …making leather braided bracelets …

I just took today as a “fun day” in my garden. I brought some of my jewellery supplies outside …. set up some little folding tables. Started the water features (a sump pump in a galvanized washtub, and two others) ….

I brought out a mug of Yorkshire tea (kept in my Starbucks reusable cup with lid).

Set up my tables with supplies, tea and my folding stool.

Turned on my lovely little Ipod, relaxing music playing in the Diggit speakers!

Looked around me .. so happy to be in the atmosphere of growing plants .. feeling the energy of the vines, the flowers .. of the Scarlett Red Runner Beans .. the bees love these .. it is such a treat to watch them in the flowers!

The volunteer squash are just flowering like crazy. I don’t expect that I will get many squash, but am so happy that the bees are having food sources on this first day of September.

Hour after hour .. I spent .. enjoying creating these braided bracelets! .. I lost myself in the timeless decadent world of creativity.

Bliss … happiness .. joy .. contentment ..

As I began to create the bracelets, it was early in the day .. the sun moved around me and I enjoyed the beauty of the translucent light in the green leaves of all the growing life in the yard.

The beauty of sight and sound as the water pumps created a peaceful background, hiding the city “noise”.

I look around my garden .. at the temporary structures that I created, to allow climbing plants to grow freely and happy that I did this.

Am always delighted and surprised at how the garden shapes up in a different fashion year after year!

Where the garlic once grew, in two shaped areas, is now entirely different. Two solid pvc arches (thanks, hubby!) now create aerial formations to which I’ve attached those extendable trellis shapes and along which the volunteer squash and pole beans grow up.

The garden is once again, a beautiful lush place … and a continuous learning place. “Next year .. I will …” 🙂

I’ll post photos later … just wanted to share the joy of being in my garden again .. and not gardening!

Who knew!!
