Hello, and welcome to my oasis. I’m a big believer in the meditative properties of a little weeding, and the fitness rewards of a lot of digging! Whether sitting by the pond watching the koi swim circles around one another, huddling with friends next to a blazing fire pit, or sinking my shovel into the foundation of a new garden while red-tailed hawks circle lazily overhead, I find that my garden is always a place of peace and retreat from whatever curveballs life throws out. It isn’t always perfect, and it isn’t always behaving the way I want, but it is always teaching me something new and giving me a place to recharge. Hopefully this blog will inspire and help you to create your own green retreat.
