An act of faith

Wednesday, 30 May 12 Cloudy 18°C / 64°F

A devastating diagnosis
Deserves a garden of its own
Thyme for time
Red tomatoes for joy
Peppers and basil because life needs spice
Hen-and-chicks tell her story; the chicks she tries to fledge regularly stumble back
Lots of thyme, because she needs it
Sunflowers to lift their faces to the life-giver
Calla because I had them
Carpets of thyme to walk on
Iris because they won’t bloom again until next year, when I will pick them with her

Lynn's garden

    I reread this just now – sending positive energy your way to Lynn and praying for everyone’s strength and of course more thyme – because everyone needs more thyme -. and more red tomatoes. Hugs.
