Lovely bouquet of flowers! Such a nice picture, @paul2032! And I love the way the color of the purple flowers is picked up jn the corner scrollwork Smiling

The garden is my retreat to a calm, serene setting away from the troubles of the world. Working in the garden can be tiring but invigorating and helps me escape for a while.

I agree The picture goes so well with the scroll, beautiful.
I don't know what I would do without my garden, a refuge for sure Lovey dubby
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

That is a gorgeous photo, Paul! It goes so well with the inspirational quote. Whoever chose to link the two did a great job. Was that you, Jon?

I love it! When I used to come home exhausted and frustrated by my job, I would go into my garden. When I couldn't take out my anger and resentment on people, there were always weeds or worse, bamboo. I still find my garden an excellent place for prayer and meditation. Thank You!
