My garden, my sanctuary, my escape from the terrors of this world. To turn a barren piece of land into an abundant source of food, relaxation, hard
work, and yet pleasure. The amazement in my daughters eyes as the seeds she planted sprout into their true form. We use nature to sustain our bodies
with good organic healthy food.
The peas climbing the fence, and the carrots sprouting like wildflowers. The course of nature sure is great to watch. The beans sprout up and soon

Until then I'll cherish your gifts and enjoy the comfort for which you bring.
