Garden Report 2010 – Week 14

Working in the garden brings me such peace.

‘Cept when it’s hotter than hades out there.

I try to work in the morning or evening, when it’s not so hot.

But one of the things I enjoy the most is the sounds of nature that keep me company.

Things like this…


The cooing of a mourning dove.

The flapping of wings.

Next door to our farm they built a cul-de-sac.

And where my garden is located I can see the road that leads into the neighborhood.

It also means that those driving on that road can see me if I’m in the right spot.

I don’t get over there much, mostly because I’m busy over here.

But I do know a couple of families who live over there.

The other morning I was working away in the garden when I began hearing a horn blaring.

Looking up, I noticed one of my friends had stopped her car and was waving like mad.

At me.

I smiled great big and waved back.

She went on her way and I went back to doing whatever it was that I was doing in the garden.

With a happy heart.

Birds that serenade me and a friend that stopped for a moment just to say hello.

What more can one ask for while working in the garden?

  1. Well dang, if life just doesn’t get any better than this! We live on a dirt road where passers by can wave, honk or just kill me with the wake of their dust. I’m not always happy to be seen, sometimes I’m just a big old dirt-ball workin’ out there on my acre of flower gardens.

    God bless ya from the happy hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa!!!
