Garden of love!

Like all successful relationships, there is a bit of effort involved in the maintenance of a garden. And like all great relationships, it involves patience, mutual respect, love of what it is today, and visions of what it could be tomorrow.

The following photograph’s were taken by my daughter’s boyfriend Dillon, and reflect his hard work in our garden (he is our creative director of flower management! ). Our household consists of four people, and we all have worked hard to make the garden what it is today! Of course, the vast majority of the work has been done by nature (99.999999) and we humans are merely the caretakers!

I am enormously grateful every day even before I am fully awake when I feel my loving/beautiful/sexy soulmate with her sparkling golden hair sleeping beside me. I greatly delight in our progeny, also of a feminine bent, and beautiful in every way as well as being more than I could have ever hoped for!

I am also aware of my gratitude when I look out the window, go on the back porch or am outside enveloped in the garden, sampling the fragrances, enjoying the birds, and joyously handling the moist soil!

I am truly a lucky man!

Less than an hour prior to sunset.

I have posted more shots from my iPhone than from my digital SLR this year. I have enjoyed the ad hoc nature of this camera, which I always have in my pocket. This evening I was struck by the beautiful cast of the sunlight upon my garden just prior to the sunset. I chose several shots for this post.
