A Rough Start to 2017

Hello friends!

I’ll just be honest with you, we are off to a rough start to 2017 here OPP.  We have lost a young man near and dear to us and way too soon.  He and number 2 son were freshman college roommates and it just seems like yesterday.

You know how much a garden means to me and so I was happy to retreat to the Eudora Welty garden yesterday for some serious cereus weeding.  The camellias are beginning to reveal their wintry display…

Year after year these beauties adorn the landscape in the bleak midwinter…

A beacon of hope in the form of a flower…

I can always find a bit of healing in the garden…

image

No wonder…

The garden promises that there will be hope, joy and things to look forward to in the new year…

Happy New Year…
