My post today is a continuation of my previous post of a stroll through my garden. I like to have these photos for when winter comes, I can look back on my garden and anticipate spring. I have met many of God's creations in my garden as I mentioned before about Mr. Armadillo. Here are some more who inhabit my garden: a gray fox, an opossum, a whole family of raccoons, a squirrel, various lizards and snakes, Pepe Le Pew (yes I have only seen him once and definitely did not disturb him), a bullfrog (He serenades me to sleep at night), hummingbirds, mockingbirds, cardinals, blue jays, and of course, my three kitties. I am glad we can all live together in harmony. I also love to see my grandchildren playing hide and go seek or having "tea parties" in my garden. They run through my garden like little fairies flitting from flower to flower. My garden is a place of joy and tranquility for me. Thank you for letting me share it with you! I hope you all are having a lovely week!
The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth,
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
