I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

A Day in the Gardens

Hello friends,

After 2 weeks of non-stop rain and then a week of temps near 100, my yards has gotten the best of me so the lawn was mowed, trimmed, and weeds pulled today. Thought you might like to take a gander:

I decided to cut some of the larger sedum and propagate some plants throughout other areas of the yard.

These bushes are coming out in the fall; in the meantime I've been cutting them back as much as possible. A shade garden will go in their place.

I'm trying to get the rest of this area filled in with hostas. They look so nice around the birch tree.
I bought this garden stake at the Benson Days craft fair. Kind of looks like green M & M's doesn't it?

Zinger needed some fresh air so she supervised.

Honeysuckle vine along the back fence.

Part of the lily garden; it has really taken off this year.


  1. I wish my yard looked half as good as yours. I love the honeysuckle vining on the back fence. The Lily garden looks like it is thriving.

    Zinger is cute. I bet he liked being outdoors. Is he mostly inside?


  2. Our yard does pretty well despite all of the snails.

    Yep she likes being outside with us when we're working but you have to keep an eagle eye on her or she'll wander into the neighbor's yard and tease the dog.
