A garden is a place of tranquility, peace, contemplation and nature.    A place to retreat to, play in and connect with yourself and the environment.

A place of renewal, happiness, laughter and wonder.  A place of relationship, effort, taking care of and finding reward.

My garden is tranquil this morning, somewhat quiet but the House Finches are busy feeding and flying in and out of the it.   The Hummingbirds?   I think they’re mad at me since I had to remove the last of the giant Penstemons which still had a few blossoms, but were invested with something that I couldn’t identify.

Now they will have to wait patiently for the Everetts Choice Fuchsias to bloom later this summer.   Then the feast will begin.   Another cycle in the garden and a bow to summer.

I’m leaving my Agapanthus, left from the previous home owner, for the hummers. They love them, and they nicely bridge that time when the spring flowers are gone and the Zauschneria starts. I thought they’d be too blue, but the hummers don’t mind.
