A New Place To Lay My Hat...

Garden Bench & Hat

I am delighted to announce that we have a new home to move to!

Words cannot describe how happy and relieved I feel.

Our new home is on Bainbridge Island and I just know that it will be the source of lots of new photographs AND, I'm as excited about the garden as I am about the house..., I feel like a puppy with two tails!!!  Which tail do I wag first???

I love the way my garden smells after its rained, so last night (in between rain showers,) I took a stroll outside to take in the ever changing beauty and talk with my beloved plants - I'm a FIRM believer in the power of good and kind words spoken to plants, people and any living thing for that matter.  I told them how much I loved them, and how proud I am of them and how much joy they have brought me and many passerby's, and I informed them that even though I will be moving, the new owner is an avid gardener, (which according to the real estate agent was one of the big reasons why they bought our house.)  And I know that in my heart they will be fine, and I am leaving them in very capable hands.  It may sound silly, but I have nurtured these plants and fretted over some as if they were my own children.

Now, its time to say goodbye and let them go...

Congratulations, Neinah, this move has been a long time coming in some ways and now happening at just the right time and in its own time. How good is this?!

I note this news of change is arriving on a Full Moon. The keywords for this Full Moon are "Emotional Rebirth". This Full Moon carries the energies to help re-invigorate our passion for living, and encourages us to follow our hearts as we go forward -- even if in so doing, we break some rules (via following the nonconformist impulse).
