So it would seem

Gardening and sculpture have been bosom buddies since way back. A tree with a goddess gesturing a cornucopia, horn o'plenty fruits and vegetables cascading carved marble frozen in time. How wonderful would the grapes have been, green or red mini bombs of luscious flavor. The peaches ripe juicy golden orange plump orbs with a slight…

My wish has been granted…

I'm trapped in the Cinderella generation I've got Snow White syndrome with a side of Barbie envy. I'm waiting for my fairy godmother to arrive when I am down upwind of a cougar waiting for my knight in shining armor downwind of a bear waiting for Prince Charming No help in sight. I'll have to…

Claiming my heart rate and releasing…

Water

"Watah!" says Girlie from the back seat. "I get wet." Everyday, every fountain, sprinkler, lake, pond, stream or puddle we pass she declares with the sweetness of a three year old. Not a request, just a statement of fact.

Garden
