I would love to tell you that I was gracious about the change to our yard. But truthfully I was not. I was really upset about what had happened and I let everyone who would listen know exactly how I felt. After accepting the fact that the trees had to come down and that they were not coming back, I decided I needed to begin to recreate my sanctuary. Now, I am planting flowers that love sun. I have been visiting our local nursery and talking to the people who work there and I am learning all kinds of new things. I still want a simple garden. But now the garden can be filled with many different types of flowers and it will be fun to see what I can create. I have decided that this summer I will just play with ideas and see what happens. Then over the winter I will really begin to design the garden that I want.
I am a firm believer in accepting the fact that life is always changing. Sometimes the changes are huge and sometimes just a little bump in the road. No matter what, I believe that it is how we face the changes and move forward that is important. So this week my walk in the backyard had a few bumpy spots. But I am sure that before I know it they will all be smoothed out and the garden will be more beautiful than ever! How was your walk this week?
