Six Years Later & A Garden Tour…💕

Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.
– Leonard Nimoy

Hello, sweet friends…

This past weekend Joe and I shared our home in a local garden tour…


and six years ago (on the same weekend)

we had made the biggest move of my life…


moving from California to the Oregon Coast….

Reflecting on these past years…

I’ve learned that changing the direction of your life is a bit like growing things from seed…

Those early ideas dreams can be compared to early seedlings…

some just don’t develop at all…

others grow wild…

and a few seem to flourish and grow at their own pace…

I thought it was quite amazing that our garden tour coincided with the anniversary date of moving out of California…

Both dates will be forever embedded as precious memories.

Beginning something new requires a lot of patience…

and faith…

There’s been so many changes small and large since then…

some which have made a huge difference in our lives…

Similar to gardening the key to success is being patient with yourself and others…while continuing to nurture all those little seeds… flowers… and dreams… having faith and believing that something will grow and flourish in time.

    Beautiful and stunning flowers. I was concerned with your safety when I heard about the extreme heat in the Northwest and the potential for forest fires. I’ve never been on the Oregon coast, so had no idea you seem to be in a perfect safety zone. I am amazed at the growth of your flower gardens and how beautiful your gardens have become. Congratulations on making such a productive move and following through with such beautiful results
