A Moment of Verdant Bliss
Â Cool, lush, verdant: a moment of mid-summer bliss in the Secret Garden
It’s been an incredibly rewarding, but also a busy and stressful week at my studio. I bite my nails when anxiety rises and I know that worrying about tomorrow robs me of today. Gardening has taught me to slow down and stay in the moment. After an hour or two of weeding therapy, I realize that I’m exactly where I need to be, right now.

So beautiful! And exactly the reminder I needed right now. Thank you, Michaela.
So good to stay grounded: )
Are there baby Trillium or Jack-In-The-Pulpit started here by your lovely pool?
Thank you, Leslie.
Hi Deb, I think what you are seeing is still-green leaves of self-sown Cryptotaenia japonica â€˜Atropurpureaâ€™. xx M
