rose Gardening is an enjoyable hobby. It can be a bit of work, but it is a great retreat away from the phone and computer, which I use for work regularly. Getting outside in the sun is also a real treat when you can dress for it! Sure I see some sun as I walk from my car to the the house, and out to the waterfront and then to check out the garage, drive to the next place and do it all over again! Dressed in work clothes I don't  get a suntan on my back or my legs, just a couple more freckles on my nose..... So every chance I get, I'm outside in the garden.....

a phone Teaching Miss Alivia to make and take my phone calls, that will take a lot of stress out of my job.

flowers Miss Alivia knows that we always take time out to smell the flowers.

We also take time to be inspired.......

I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful.

Very nice post....and lovely photos!     Gardening does deliver solace.    Thanks for the reminder of the great quote from Bob Hope, who was an authentic humanitarian.

Sweet photos...I love gardening too. There is something about getting my hands in the earth that is uplifting and healing. Have a wonderful day there.

Li, Thank you. I agree, it is peaceful as long as you're not out once the mosquitos come out! Bob Hope was a great comedian! Much respect and many laughs!

Since I have been in real estate I come to have a love appreciation for my roses too. I am working on growing a new type but they are not photo ready yet. That's a pretty special little helper you have there too.
