Bees and flowers, laughter in the Garden, calming moments.


I found myself hyperventilating this morning in anticipation of a potential job offer.  Will it come?  Will it not?

So I gave myself a good shake, and a talking to and got in the Jeep.

I drove myself to my favorite Garden Center, The Arbor Gate in Tomball, Tx.  

Almost immediately I felt calmer.  

The sun is starting to mellow as we move into September.   Bev, the owner of the Arbor Gate, greeted me when I got there, and we talked about fall planting and when the Swiss Chard will come in.  I love Swiss Chard, it is so colorful in the garden, and quite tasty too.

I wandered about and took pictures, breathed in the garden fragrances, meandered in the herb house, and laughed at the bumble bees.  They would land on flimsy flower stems, and the stems would bow low to the ground, then spring up as the Bumbley Bees would fly off.

The Terra Cotta smiling children and pigs were so darn cute.  I had to linger and consider a purchase. 

There is something about a beautiful garden that speaks to my soul.

The final sign was priceless.  So I’m taking off my glasses for today and I’m going to stop obsessing over something I can’t control.
