"You seem to sigh a lot," I said. "Do you realize this? "I should have counted the number of times I heard you sigh during this conversation. Are you depressed?" She replied, with yet another deep sigh, "Yes, I suppose I am! I couldn't say what I am depressed about, but, (another sigh), it should be ok..."
Someone close to me once said, you have a choice. You can choose to be happy and grateful for everyday, or you can go through life with eyes wide shut and make your choice to focus on the things that aren't going right for you! I most always choose to be happy. There are two things that make me really, really happy....Kitties and beautiful gardens.....I think this is one place where they can choose to be happy....their place in the sun!

"The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses."
  ~Hanna Rion

"In the garden I tend to drop my thoughts here and there. 
 To the flowers I whisper the secrets I keep and the hopes I breathe. 
 I know they are there to eavesdrop for the angels." 

"I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself. 
And I find sufficient purpose for my day."
~Robert Brault
"Coffee.  Garden.  Coffee.  Does a good morning need anything else?" 
~Betsy CaƱas Garmon

"Fingers now scented with sage and rosemary,
 a kneeling gardener is lost in savory memories." 
 ~Dr. SunWolf

"Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a hoe and
she laughs with a harvest."
  ~Douglas William Jerrold,

"In every gardener there is a child who believes in The Seed Fairy." 
 ~Robert Brault


  1. The first and last photos took my breath away. The gorgeous cat, the lacy window surrounded by flowers and the colours that sooth my soul. How beautiful that photo is. The child, the young and the old. Very sweet.

    1. I am thrilled you enjoyed this Deb> Who could not lower their BP by enjoying cats and gardens....hopefully it will bring joy to others!
