My garden is my haven... especially now that the beds have been weeded and the overgrowth wacked. Not having to do this work and all the beatiful "finishing" touches with my own hands has made it a paradise. My trusty brother Dave has rescued our yard from being reported to the city for "overgrowth", and he has mowed, finished the patio, and completed two large garden beds.
Yesterday we enjoyed several hours outdoors and this morning the kids and I read books and did "school" projects outside for two hours. How beautiful and relaxing it was.
