#AtoZChallenge Breathe in the beauty of the garden

The garden can truly be your oasis. It's a place to relax and rejuvenate. Admire the beauty that you create. Breathe in the flowers, the dirt, and the warm winds blowing. Close your eyes and imagine those blooms while you conduct deep breathing and let go of all your worries.

It's harder to do that right now, in the cold season. I had grandiose plans of starting to clear mine out some more, but alas woke up to snow on the ground. I could really use some time in the dirt and just relaxing. I know it is coming soon. Until then, I shall just visualize my favorite flowers and dream...

This is one of my pictures from last summer. My father bought me this rose bush when I moved into the house. It's a gorgeous rusty color and has a magical scent. I love to go out every morning to inhale it. Ahhhhhh....


  1. Beautiful picture! I'm garden dreaming too...I like your A to Z theme!

  2. I'm awful with gardening. I swear if I even look at a plant it dies. Luckily, our house came with some beautiful roses that seem to be able to grow even though I have a black thumb.

  3. Stop! A gardening blog? That's awesome. Visiting from the A to Z and I'll totally be back.

  5. I stopped by from the challenge and decided to follow you. Don't be surprised if I steal one of your pictures and turn it into a watercolor painting.

  6. So lush..it looks like an apple or something else you'd eat.

  7. I've been enjoying what feels like sub-Arctic conditions to cut back the shrubs in my garden yet with hope I bought splashes of colour - irises and primroses and the like for the tubs at the front of the house *brr I'm still defrosting.

  8. We didn't get any snow this year but it was cold and bleak and Spring is getting it's start. Beautiful posts! I'll be looking forward to visiting for A-Z!

  9. Love that pic.

    I'm soon moving into my first home that I've bought, and there will be a strip of garden. I don't know what I'll do with it 'cause I tend to kill plants really easily, without even trying, but maybe I'll take better care of this.

  10. Visiting from A to Z.

    I am the *worst* with plants, but I just love them. I'm trying a few container veggies at my apartment this year, though. Hopefully it'll work out!
