Time for a simpler life

Today as the new school term begins I am home and very excited to be a retired teacher. However, I am now calling this portion of life – renewal. May you too find your renewing moments this week – happy garden life.

Time of life

Life is like a garden:

sometimes plentiful,

sometimes sparse,

greener than others

or drier than some,

but no matter what the season –

always looking for the sun.

Be happy; be botanical.
