In the early evening hours, 
a leisurely stroll through our beautiful courtyard, 
is a special time of meditation, 
prayer and spiritual refreshment!  

Here are just a few shots I took with my iPhone 
- thankfully last night - 
because today 
we had 'monsoon-like' rain for half the day 
that bent the flowers out of shape!
Hope they recuperate after that beating!

The barn got a new roof a while back!  
I could have taken a few more pics 
of the sitting area in front of the barn
where we gather some evenings
for conversation.  Open to all!

Such beautiful raised garden beds - 
so handy for our residents. 

All the delphiniums and daisies are offspring
of perennials from my own garden. 
 I donated them when I first started working there 
27 years ago!
Volunteers keep this garden a real show piece!

And HE walks with me and HE talks with me
and HE tells me I am His own! 
And the joy we share, as we tarry there,
none other has ever known!

Thanks for stopping by!

The garden truly is beautiful and made all the more special by your connection to it!

It is really just beautifully kept. I love the big wagon with the pump and jar in front of the barn. All these different flowers, and the S shape of the flower bed is really beautiful.

I love the hymn, In the Garden... It was my mother's favorite hymn...

Nothing beats walking and talking with Jesus and among the beauty of the flowers even better medicine for the spirit. Praying for the best for you Karin.

You come to my mind often and I just ask God to give you the comforts that you need for each day.

Hi was so nice to see you stop by this morning and say hello!

The flowers most definitely are a show case and wonderful eye candy.
