In The Garden




It is a great feeling to wake up in the morning to a soul warming aroma of a freshly brewed pot of coffee. Varuzh is awesome! Ahhhh. After accumulating stress during the week, I finally started letting it go, and the cold that made me feel so miserable was finally gone...

I poured coffee into my favorite yellow mug, added a little milk, and, while still in my pajamas, headed out to my garden.

Varuzh was already there, getting ready to plant a few plants I picked up from Roger's Garden a week earlier.

As we were designing where to plant the flowers and where to plant the trees, I realized that our garden started to take some shape. Finally! It is not nearly finished, but it is no longer an empty place with some plants here and some plants there. Nice.

I suddenly felt so... grown up. As a child I have always thought that moms, aunties, and grandparents grow gardens, and kids play in gardens. I read so many books about greatest children's adventures that took place in gardens! And now I watch Alex play in the garden... in my garden!

So I kept sipping the coffee, chatting with Varuzh while he was placing the stones to create a little pathway.
Then I watched him planting the new plants. They looked so pretty and colorful. I was assured by my friend Mary Ann, that these plants are pretty easy to care for, and that they will soon take over the garden. And that is exactly what I want. I want my garden be a beautiful mix of colors, wild and chaotic.

Once I finished drinking coffee, I went to the kitchen to put the mug into the sink. On the way back to the garden, I grabbed my camera. I find it so relaxing to walk from plant to plant, explore their beauty. 

Plants are so peaceful in the morning and glow an amazing renewed energy.

Here are some of my beautiful finds!

I felt so refreshed.


With love always,
