Thanks for sharing your garden. It reminds me of all the goodness that can be and pulls my awareness to the vibrant life resting beneath the frozen leaves. I'll visit again and again not only for inspiration but for renewal. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you, Sherri, for that lovely comment. The nice thing about a cybergarden is that it's open 24/7, and you can visit whenever you have the inclination. Smiling
