My Yard Cave

You can just barely see our sitting area and deck and I call it our cave. It is nice and cool and very relaxing after work or on the weekend. I made some yummy lemonade and just sat. I have been trying to slow down on my art some and getting a few of the neglected things on my list done. The first one on my list was my husband. We work together so I haven't felt bad about spending time in my studio, but I realized we needed some time together to just relax and enjoy our beautiful yard and just hang out together. A very rewarding idea. Then little by little I have been working in the yard, pruning roses, clipping bushes and picking up here and there. The summer is going fast. The only way you can slow it down some is to do something different. Change your pattern. Tackle a big project. Go somewhere special, even if it is your own backyard. ENJOY AND RENEW.....DIANE

I find working in my garden therapeutic, as well. You're right,sometimes we have to slow down and hit the refresh button.

Your garden is so inviting. I love all the mature trees. What a great place to relax with a glass of lemonade.

Enjoy your respite,

PS, the girl in the picture (of my last post) was me....age four.

Very lovely - I like gardens which look a little "wild" instead of having all the trees and flowers standing in one line ;)
