Seems the time has come for me to be with my gardens. Why? I am redesigning many of my gardens [HOLY MOLY!], which means, adding to [buying at a Nursery] new flowers, bringing them home and planting them, thinning out existing flowers and transplanting them to other gardens, getting rid of plants that are not doing well or transferring them to other gardens where the growing conditions are more befitting, … filling holes in [with new flowers] to create a more lush look in my gardens.
Oh may my back stay strong! Thank goodness for Cod Liver Oil and Acupressure!
As I am doing this very heavy work, my Heart is healing from all the major losses I have had. My Soul is crying for Silence, of BEing, of eliminating the “noise” to get back to basics. I’m an Empath, a Sensitive with Gifts most would not understand. I must renew, refresh, dip into the simplicity of setting into the Earth a flower, tending it, and watching it grow. As Rumi wrote, “…. listen quietly for a voice that will say, Be more silent. As that happens, your soul starts to revive.”
May I be given the strength and stamina to accomplish all I plan on doing.
The photograph is a newbie in my gardens. I bought 6 Oriental Lilies. Their fragrance is of Heaven! That is just for starters for I have bought many other flowers, some of which have been put into the ground thus far. There is no better place right now for me then to have my hands in Mother Earth.
I am One with Mother and She with Me.
I yearn to be creating with my hands [not just with my eyes] and creating I am. I will show you what I am creating when I come back, I promise and you can be the judge of how hard I worked (or not).
I’ll see you when I see you. Sending my Love and many (((HUGS))) with this post.
