My gardens

One of my favorite places to daydream is in my gardens and flowerbeds.

The splashes of color throughout the yard from the flowers catch my eye like a magnet. And I marvel at the delicate beauty -- bleeding hearts, iris, columbine, lily of the valley -- all to be enjoyed for too soon the blooms will wither away.

What could be better than sitting outside in the warm sun listening to birds singing and windchimes tinkling? And inhaling the heady aromas of the herbs?

And let's not forget the wind sighing or moaning through the slats of our fence whispering of other places I've been or wish to go. Or murmuring ideas for stories to me.

Yes, the garden is a great place for my muse...
