Here is the quote by the 14th Dalai Lama for your inspiration:

[...] "The purpose of our lives is to be happy". [...]  Dalai Lama

the dirt was dug
rocks arranged for tiny feet
grandma's backyard

fossils, rocks and goldfish pond
the best kind of happy

freckles
blue eyes smiling say in love
your yard is cute

melting heart in grandma's chest
as they go search for fireflys

    1. Thanks, Kristjaan. It took many years to develop. Then it became more difficult to maintain to my standards as husband and I aged. The garden belongs to someone else, now.

    1. You are so kind. The small back yard garden was a real retreat except when it came time to rebuild something!
