Grace in the Garden . . . .

I look at how incredibly different these 3 flowers are in size, color, style.  Rose of Sharon the top, Cone flower in the middle and Bronze Fennel all delicate at the bottom.  We as humans share those differences with the plant world.  Some of us are bright and forward some are quiet and delicate, some fit  in the background, some are showy and center stage.   I am a background girl myself.  Where do you fit in the garden of life?

" Everything that slows us down and forces
 patience, everything that sets us back
 into the slow circles of nature is a help.  
Gardening is an instrument of grace"
