Self nurturing.

Today I'm being gentle and kind on myself. All that soul probing last week has left me a little ragged on the edges. I've treated myself to some nurturing food, candle burning, playing music, putting my hair up with a flower on the side (that always makes me feel good) and some cut fresh flowers. My life always feels more complete with flowers. Lately I've realised how much I am missing my old garden, 4 hours south of here. It was abundant in roses and many other delightful blooms. My new tropical garden, whilst practical and easy to care for is....well, tropical.

It is what it is, and I am grateful for my vase of roses. Here's to self nurturing!!

Nothing wrong with a tropical garden. Maybe where I live in South Florida is similar to where you live. We're in the tropics. I'm looking forward to the production of these new trees we just planted: mango, avocado, key lime. The papaya is already producing.
P.S. I keep coming back to your blog because it's so inspiring. I think I'll add a link to it on my blog!
