I took my coffee outside to
enjoy the birdsong

my petunias are
in love with fall..
"Flowers lift the spirit and refresh the soul."
and I thought I would capture some shots of
the dew covered garden..
to share with you
my little garden is one place
"If you've never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden."
I used to struggle in the winter..

and quietly watching over them
grow.. grow.. grow...
