Sometimes finding peace, just requires taking a walk in the back yard as I did today. The water pump may seem like a rusty old piece of metal to some, but for our family it represents generations of hard working people, who knew what it was to have a strong work ethic, and passed it down to our generation. A birdbath is dressed with hostas at the base, a split railed fence is lined with brick. The plum tree holds hanging baskets, roses are at the base of the pump, and on the patio. Nandina, and a eucalyptus tree stump with bird feeders are beside the crepe myrtle trees and mimosa trees, home to all manner of birds who are making their sojourn to the south, a place where squirrels sneak the bird feed whenever they can, and the rabbits play. Welcome to my garden.
