Re: Gosh I miss you guys

Kitty: Good advice as usual. Funny thing is that as messy as it is, I've
seen more goldfinches in my garden this year than I have in past. And
the monarch catepillars have hatched...have more of them, too. Wonder if
there's a connection. And yes, I try to enjoy the beauty spots...they
are definitely there, just not as tidily as I might want them. And I
suppose that to onlookers who aren't intimately familiar with my
gardens, it looks lush and full of blooms...I'm probably the only one
who knows it's not the way I want it.

Congrats Melody. Your garden should be a pleasure and a refuge, don't be
<br>guilted by it. Do what you can when you have time. Look past the
chaos to <br>see the beauty that is still there.<br><br>Kitty<br>neIN,

time...to spend here with you guys. I really <br>>> miss<br>>> all of
you and your advice, your support, your friendships. Can't believe<br>>>
how fast my time is going by. Next week I graduate from my first<br>>> 2
