I have been busy working on some projects around my house for the past few weeks. I want to come out here and show you what I'm doing and what my little life is all about, but life in the garden is greater and more satisfying than anything I could show you, or do. And thus, I keep coming back for more throughout my days; coming back for summer's delight under the privets and birds songs, and the small hummingbird that has befriended our little white cottage...
The woods beyond our gardens are never solitary. They are the habitat of wings and small whispering and mysterious sounds beckoning me...
The other evening, I had a bird following me through the garden. Just as the last sun of the day was turning in for the night, I went outside to bid my farewell to my little world, as I usually do. Then, all of a sudden, I felt something brush past me against my hair... it was a bird! So fast and low it flew, that it almost hit my head... I wonder if perhaps he was looking for a place to spend the night and thought my hair the perfect pillow? After all, sometimes I do have a nest of a head indeed.
Summer has enchanted my soul... I chat with roses and kiss petals, I applaud the sky and the final parade of colors in shades of purples and pinks in which sky and earth shroud themselves with every evening. The rarity of the spider flower, the purity of the moonflower vine in its whiteness and puffy bride's skirts of a flower... everything I see pull the finest strings deep down in my soul.
I want to live outside as long as I can; be part of the hush in which the evening recoils, or perhaps become a firefly and fly along transparent wings... summer has planted itself in its zenith, and everywhere I look I see beauty... flowers, colors, forms and birds and butterflies a plenty. I had to come back here and share my joy! I just had to!
Do forgive this crazy love... I really wasn't planning on posting more garden pics so soon, in case you'd hate me. But my little heart is bursting with garden happiness. And I just had to share it! ;)
Love and smiles to you!
Ps: Can we love people by just knowing they exist? I know I can. I know I don't know you in person, but those of you who come by often to share life's little moments with me, and leave little presents for me in the form of comments, have become so real to me. You have become part of my life... and I can sincerely say "I love you!" That's how crazy I am! ;)
