I love my garden.
I love sitting in my garden; watching the goldfinches fight at their feeder and the sparrows sprint to theirs, grab a quick bite, and hop over to the fence.
I love watching the bees. There are some really yellow bees on my lavender -- they fascinate me.
And, I love the sunflowers that the birds planted.
When I'm stressed, I walk in the garden. I pick a few weeds, check the fruit swelling on the trees, and pluck the spent blooms from the flowers.
Or, I sit. Just sit. Drink in the peaceful, chirping, buzzing busyness of my garden.
This week, in particular, I am very thankful for my garden.
