I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.
-Evelyn Underhill

Happiness is like a butterfly: 
the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, 
but if you turn your attention to other things, 
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.
-Henry David Thoreau

This week in my garden I was reminded that life begins with the young looking quite different from what they'll be when mature.  Like these fawns with their white spots. . . .

Father's Day

There is a new father in my garden!  
I have not seen him yet--just his hungry babies.  

For several years I've set this decorative bird house on the fence post in my Arbor Garden. . . .

First Things First

I have many things on my To Do List for today, but first things first!  Like taking time to read devotionals and journaling, and let's not forget breakfast.  It's late already by the time I do these first things first.  But my garden calls to me, so I must obey.....and find the first roses, ever, on my trellis that I'd transplanted to that spot last year.  They were supposed to be white, but I see a tinge of pink and I am in love. . . .
