Good-bye my sweet garden

July 7th, 2010

The move from Southern California to Seattle is underway.

We are up to our ears in boxes, cleaning supplies, disassembled X-box game systems, piles of things to take to the Goodwill, and four years of memories.

Today, for a moment, I decided to hit the pause button and enjoy my backyard. I discovered that watching pollinators move from nectar source to nectar source is the very best therapy for an overly-tired body and soul.

Here is a little show, from me to you:

    What a beautiful garden, Debra. I’m sure your trek back north will result in another beautiful landscape. Looking forward to seeing you in Dallas.

    You can see into the soul of a person by looking into their garden and yours is beautiful! Good luck as you relocate: new place, new plants, new opportunities.

  7. Theresa Loe Says:

    As I watch this, I can truly see the “soul” of your garden which reflects the “heart” of the gardener who created it.

    As much as you will miss this special place, it will always be in your heart.

    Hugs to you on your journey.

    WOW! What a garden you had to leave behind. I really enjoyed the video. Are you settled in Seattle yet? I wanted to invite you to join our new social network for gardeners, Once you start a new garden in Seattle would be great to see it blossom!
