The Ocean’s Shore

Booknvolume

This is a re-run, to be sure, but it goes so well with today’s theme…

Ocean's Shore

Walk along the ocean shore. Listen to the rhapsody of sound. The restless surging of waves, the tireless whisper of the breeze. Feel the gentle caress of salt-sea air brushing its fingers through your hair, blushing your cheek, enwrapping you in that place entirely. Listen to the cries of the terns, winging overhead upon the boundless open sky.

Garden Number 9

Heaven On Earth

04 24 14_0772 What did I tell you? When rain is forecasted here, it does not rain. So again I find myself looking at another garden day. Today, though, I will be a lot easier on myself then I was yesterday. As you can see from this photo, I did a ton of work yesterday. It doesn’t look like there is much in this garden (between sidewalk and house, towards the house), but there are a good (how many did I count yesterday?) ten maybe, Rose Bushes, most of them being ground cover Roses.
