A garden gives us joy and hope.  Then literally it gives us fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers for our bouquets. We know certain plants will die, others will sleep through the winter and bloom afresh in the spring and summer. We must work to keep gardens beautiful and while we "teach" them discipline, they in turn teach us discipline. 

If we do not tend to our gardens we know they will run wild.

The theme for this month's party is fantastic... I love it 
...thanks Tish and thanks Marsha for hosting such a great party !

Tending our Gardens ...Gaia....Mother Earth and all her beauty
As I have said many times before, I get most of my inspiration from spending time in the garden.  

 Recently I read that if you put new seeds (vegetable and herbs) into your mouth for a couple
of minutes before planting them they will quite literally gather your DNA and thus
grow perfectly for you and what your body needs.  Isn't that remarkable!
You do need to also nurture them as they grow and they will also hear your voice vibration
and grow especially for you.
I love kissing new little buds, (yes...okay... I hug a trees and kiss little baby buds)  
and I am mesmerised by looking right into the centre of a flowers,

and I especially love hanging around under trees when it's raining watching the drips of water drop through the branches.  
I love gardens so much that did you know that I also have a GARDEN blog.

 Yesterday morning I was folding
the washing off the line and a little moth fell out.... so I brushed it away, sadly it fell
to the floor upside down with a damaged wing...... so I picked it up and put it onto a tree.
A few minutes later I saw it flapping it's wings trying to get out of a spiders web.
Gosh... was that the moths fate...or did I do that?

When a butterfly flaps it's wings........... have you heard the saying?
What have I done?

I really don't mind if a garden runs wild... it can be quite beautiful.
I think we all run a little wild sometimes, it only natural and healthy.

We are very lucky here in the Highlands..we have had so much rain recently (almost all year) that
the surrounding countryside is green, lush and perfect.  And .... I so love the light at this
time of the year (it's Autumn here in Australia).  I try to spend as much time as
I can outside.  I love the movie Pocahontas and the Grandmother Willow tree.
Do you think that the trees can talk like Grandmother Willow?
  I do... they talk to us in a unique and different way.
You just need to stop and listen!  

All these images on this post are my work and my daily life through the seasons.
Photographs from my little cottage garden... 
and some images are from local gardens that I have worked in
 and some from my family and friends gardens.

Wishing you all a wonderful, safe and creative Easter!
