Seeking Comfort: Gardens

Focus on something cheerful and happy today

Today, I am at a loss for words. There have been a few times in my life that I’ve been witness to something I thought I would never see. Yesterday’s invasion of our country’s capitol building by some of our own citizenry was one of them. Today, I am focusing on the beautiful and the good in our world. Being a gardener, conservationist, naturalist, environmental educator, and grand appreciator of the great outdoors, I humbly turn to nature for comfort.

The bold colors of the flower gardens I’ve tended over the years bring me comfort, as do the memories associated with these places. I hope the photographs also bring you some cheer and hope, today.
