Nurturing my soul






With all the gray weather we've been having lately, it was heaven to spend some time in the garden today ~ listening to the birds chirping, hearing the bees buzzing, and just relaxing in the warmth of the sunshine. It does a body good!

an elixir that nurtures and shapes the soul."

Love your garden pics - isn't it wonderful outside this week - we are lucky to live here when Spring arrives with such beauty.

Your white china is gorgeous and that plate you found with the green design is definitely a treasure.

Happy Spring Donna.

Donna your garden looks lovely! I was away for 10 days and when I returned I saw that my peonies were peeping through the soil! I just planted them last year and I hope I see lots of flowers this year..

I received my rooster painting today. I LOVE it! I am going to ask you to make one more soon...
Hugs,
Penny

What a pretty garden you have Donna. Inspiration for more lovely watercolour pictures.

Hi Donna,

I am with you 100%. After a grueling day at work, I can come home, slip into sandals and walk around the pond and garden, watch the birds, and feel myself let go of all pressures.

The sun came out yesterday and today. But...rain, cold, frost on the way...

Your yard is so pretty!

Nurturing my soul is just what I am working on doing! I just discovered your blog after Dianne found mine - what a glorious tangled web. Your garden is so pretty, and aren't your doggies just perfect! I'll pop back soon to see what you are all doing. XXX
