I have a laminated piece of card on the shower screen that asks about 10 different questions and these help me focus when things are challenging. Sounds corny but it works. Usually when I have the greatest resistance to answering the questions is when I need it the most. Some especially challenging days I have to go through it twice and it takes a while but eventually makes me feel better . I am always amazed at how much I have to be thankful for.
So here goes.... the first 6
1. My Japanese garden which is the only place nearly finished, low maintenance and the sanctuary from the rest of the messy garden it has provided.
|Love the colours of nandina and forest pansy|
2. The beautiful agapanthus flowers- so hardy- the nursery owners say they they are weeds but they have been a blessing in my garden. I divided some months ago and even the ones I left and never got around to putting in the ground are flowering now. Talk about tough.
|Not bad for a weed!|
|Lots of growing to go but small beginnings.|
|bargain plants make it possible|
4. That the young camellias I transplanted are surviving and looking remarkably healthy and happy.
|maybe the angel is proteting the camellias from harm|
