We have been having some fantastic summer rains for a couple days. It’s been so nice feeling the change in temps in the afternoon. We are so Grateful to have the rains this year. The flowers are so happy too! This is one of our purple cone flowers.
It’s November 22nd and gez what a year it has been. We are all trying to find a little hope and peace in the middle of so much suffering. I have been growing a container garden for a couple years now. It’s better for my back and knees at this age. We have had a few frosts this year. The days have been unseasonably warm and these flowers I planted have been thinking about blooming for awhile. Today when I went out at noon to look around this little flower had opened up. How sweet is that?
This sweet little flower is in the same container as the parsley I planted. A few other flowers are thinking of opening up too. Parsley does well in cold weather and frosts but I am so surprised with these flowers. It makes my heart sing with joy! ❤
That’s all ! I wanted to share this with you! You never know what little miracle will come to show you a little joy in life. To remind you it’s all okay even when everything is so uncertain. To be honest uncertainty is part of everyday life.
So cold weather has come or maybe? It’s has been so cold for about a week (at night) daytime is perfect if the wind isn’t blowing. Frost got the flowers for the year but some of the green leaves are hanging in there. They are pretty tuff plants. River and I went out to watch and or chase the birds lol so I snapped a couple pictures. I have been working on taking apart the garden beds in the garden and sifting the dirt . That way I can make the dirt much better with some work. Container gardening is the answer for me at my age and because the moles and gophers are relentless. So to live peacefully with them I choose to have containers. Better for me anyway.
This is a picture of a mesquite tree in our back garden area. This is where the birds come to eat the food I put out for them. River, our sweet little boy we adopted this summer, likes to chase the birds and play ball.
You can see the awesome wood pile, in the background, we have to keep us warm. The squirrels love the wood pile. They are out there playing all day long unless the hawks come by.
This is River and his tennis ball. He loves to play catch.
We had a beautiful flower garden this year that brought us a lot of good feelings. Here are some pictures.
Even though the summer was way too hot we had a good time. It’s always a blessing to see all the flowers , herbs , and birds.
Spring is here and it feels so awesome. It’s so grounding to work in the garden and play in the dirt. The rose bush is starting to get it’s new leaves and a few seeds are starting to sprout. The first flowers have shown their faces and the weather is warm and cold. Just like spring. We woke up to spring showers with thunder and lightning this morning. The birds are singing strong and all is well. Here are a few spring pictures from our Arizona home.

Have faith in the beauty that is in your heart. Let it shine ! Know I am always with you in good times and hard times. I am the truth the light and the way. Forever eternal love 🙂 ❤
Sitting on the top of a mesquite tree the large robin red breast is watching over everything.
As the days go by I am forever grateful to be here and to be able to experience all the beauty of Mother Earth and all of life. This is what you can be a part of everyday. Sit with it all. Breath, feel and love. Open the door of your heart and let it all in. Let the sun and air move through you, let the thoughts drift by like clouds in the soft breeze. Listen to the songs of the birds carried by the wind. Go deep and let go.
