JUST....Stay....Safe.

"The lesson I have thoroughly learnt, and wish to pass on to others, is to know the enduring happiness that the love of a garden gives." Gertrude Jekyll

so....a different world is what we have now and we have to stay safe and get through this. Thankfully we can take solace in our gardens, whether large or just some containers.

Watching the garden grow and flower and cutting those blooms for a bouquet in your home, watching those tomatoes redden up, tasting that first cucumber sandwich is so good for your soul, ...I think this gives us hope and my hope for you is that you will find solace now in the little things.

Keep checking up on your friends and family. We are so lucky now to have so many ways of keeping in touch with those we love while not being with them...use them.

I have also been updating my FB page with what is happening here in Panama where I live and posting some of my many photos of beautiful flowers and places...because we will travel again....and we will appreciate it more.

Our Panama site is at WhyPanama.net Moving to a tropical country from Zone 3a in Alberta was sure some kind of adjustment, but one that we are so thankful we did. It has opened up a whole new world of plant material and article opportunities for me.
