“Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the Light.”
I have spent the entire day outdoors working in the garden and I have loved every moment. Hours spent on various projects. . . rebuilding a section of our front yard fence, pruning out the dead limbs in the old overgrown lilac and breaking the branches down to a neat pile, setting up our summer fountain, repairing a bird feeder, and proving -if only to myself- that a push-mower really can cut long grass if you’re willing to go over it a few times.
I’ve been loving the tasks, and remaining in the present moment. Being thankful for bumblebees, butterflies and songbirds swooping all around me. I am happily tired and truly satisfied with a good day’s work. I will sleep well tonight. Physical exertion plus the outdoors is a perfect prescription for sleeping through the night. Wishing you a happy day, full of sunshine, out of doors. Namaste.
