Gardens are constantly changing. They need weeding and pruning, but every once in a while for a frozen moment in time, everything looks just perfect.

Somewhere there is written a proverb that "one picture is worth a thousand words". I don't know who the author was that wrote that, but from my experience your garden pictures are worth at least 3,000! They also show that your labor in creating a 'perfect' scene is a labor of love for gardening. That is very plain to see in all your work! I'm glad you kept it just as it was at that time.

I can't say it any better than Leon just has.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
