This afternoon, I popped to the shops to get some freezer bags, and came home with a new bigger water butt. A bargain. And, I stopped on the way home to drop a book back at a good friend, and had coffee in her garden. Her husband has offered to install said water butt, so that is FANTASTIC.
The doors are wide open, and I have been playing with a project which I can't tell you about because it is a gift, and I think I am going to go and fire up the BBQ in a minute, and sit under my apple tree and soak up the beauty. I was thinking - who knows - maybe I won't have a garden like this again. Not for a while, if ever. Maybe I must remember what I keep forgetting - it is all about now. Today. That is all we have. Love it all. Smile. Soak it up and file away the memories. The petals of the rose will fall off tomorrow, so REALLY look at it today. Ditto for the other 297,893,065,938,902 flowers in my garden. Remember the scent. Examine the intricacy. Really see the miracles right here in front of me.
Accompanied by the smell of BBQ-ing meat, and a glass of chilled wine, it sounds a little like heaven to me. One question I have noted for when I get to heaven one day - why weeds? What are they meant for? Were they a mistake? And do you KNOW what bindweed does to a garden?? Hmmph. Some things are beyond understanding.
I hope the sun is shining for you too, and that your weekend is peaceful, restful and full of laughter.
