Thank you for another year of fellowship in the garden. I am so grateful for you all and it fills my heart to see viewers from all over the world enjoying this blog/site.
We are all connected. Everything we do in our own backyard, affects our global neighbors. Which means any effort that you make to improve your own yard by planting native plants (which host large numbers of insect & animal species), avoiding pesticides and reducing your storm water runoff, has a hugely beneficial impact on you, your family, your neighborhood, your country and the world.
Thank you all for all you do!
Please continue to Like, Comment, Share, Retweet, Pin & Mail to your friends. We are successful because of you.
I am very excited to let you know that you can view photos from The Soulful Gardner at the Quince Orchard Library located at 15831 Quince Orchard Rd, North Potomac, MD 20878.
I love to capture beautiful moments in the garden and in nature. Sharing those images with you gives me great pleasure. This is just the first of many shows that I plan to bring to you in the future. It is another way that I will fulfill my mission “to bring people plants and nature together for health and well-being.”
If you would like to bring a “soulful” moment in nature home, please contact me at email@example.com for pricing information.
It has been a long time since I have had an art show (think college days), but I am very excited to let you know that photos from The Soulful Gardener blog & website are currently being featured at our local Starbucks during the month of June.
Showing these photos is another fun way that I hope to connect people with plants & nature, even if it’s on their coffee break.
So, the doctor said that I needed to get more exercise. Tell me something I don’t know. I decided to make it fun. I threw my bike in the back of the car and drove to a nearby state park. I have never ridden there before, but it didn’t take long for me to find the one and only garden in the many, many acres of greenery.
As I peddled up and down the gently rolling hills of the roadway, I began seeing signs that said “Peonies.” I’m talking about actual sign posts here, not signs from heaven.
I began to follow them and what did I find? A beautiful garden of peonies in all shapes, sizes and colors. There were benches for people to sit, enjoy the view and submerse themselves in the blossom-filled air.
I stopped just long enough to take a few pictures, but the beauty of this place and the smell of the fresh morning blossoms stayed with me as I finished my ride. I think that was the most pleasant hour of exercise that I have ever had.
