The Garden 03/28/11

The garden is well on its way to waking up and I’m really enjoying watching the life come back into it. This garden was created with love and you can feel it all over you when you walk around it! It’s become my new favorite place to read my Bible. I got the New Living Translation (large print!) and I can finally understand what I’m reading. It must put me in a really special place because this past Saturday morning while I was reading, a squirrel, two doves and a robin sat less than seven feet from me as if they expected me to read to them. I was actually a little scared of the squirrel because I didn't like the way he was looking at me. It was really strange because even moving my legs didn’t seem to frighten them. The cleanup is still underway, but I would say I am about 85% there. I almost over did it Saturday because Sunday after church I bent over to put a pizza in the oven and I had a sharp pain in my back. I’ve been assured everything is okay though; I’m just stretching nerves and muscles that haven’t been used in several years. It’s “to be expected.” On another note, the largest and oldest Japanese Maple may have fallen victim to the heat last year. Keep your fingers crossed, I’ll be in touch soon. God Bless~ Randy

Your garden is looking so lush and bright already and it is only spring. Do take care of your back. You don't want any more problems. It is good to hear that you are able to get out into the garden to commune with nature.

Wow everything looks so lush and your neat grass edges remind me once again what I meant to do with my own edges for two years now!!

Your garden definitely looks like heaven and wish I become lucky someday to see that heaven for real.
Take good care of your back, Randy. My prayers are with you.

It's so nice to see the gardens waking up after their long winter's nap. Looks nice.

Your garden is looking good. Watch out for those squirrelly squirrels! Glad your back surgery is a success.
