The Garden

  1. In my old life I had a garden – the kind where people ride by your house just to look and comment at the beauty – 33 of the most glorious rose bushes ever. That was a lifetime ago. Now I have tangerines and grapefruit – planted by someone else who I imagine might say … “In my old life I had a garden.”

    This blog touched a place tucked away safely in my soul … most days ♥ In my old life I had a garden.

    • I love the thought of these gardens of lives past being handed down to new caretakers. I hope that one day I have the honor of tending a garden left behind.

      Thank you for sharing; you have always been one that has inspired me.

    Yes, you were incredibly successful in creating your vision of a magical woodland retreat. You poured your heart and soul into it and it showed. You may no longer have that garden, but you now carry that within you forever. Creating beauty like that is sacred. Your learnings, your visions, your talents are within you and go with you whereever you are. The last paragraph is stunning in it’s shift and imagery. With all my heart, I love you. The story of this painful pruning, of having your wonderful garden ripped away from you, is not over. Perhaps, like pruing, the beauty will only increase and be doubled. I hold that vision for and with you. If you so choose, may you one day have another garden where you can create to your heart’s content.
