Garden View...

spontaneous
growth
from within
nourished...
dreaming
in my
garden
view...

Today I am aware of my garden's view...As I look out and see the flowers in bloom, I am reminded that I am also in bloom...I am in a time of spontaneous growth from within. I am feeling safe and strong in a lot of ways...and I am dreaming...I am being nourished...As I gaze upon my garden I am aware that life is not to be managed...but to be lived. I am aware today, that I should not let my every day routines over take me...but rather be free to take the trip into the garden...the magic...the uncharted...the fertile soil. I am reminded to relax...to enjoy...to laugh...to love as I pass by each flower that beckons me to stop and glaze and smell it....To touch...and appreciate all that it offers me. Today as I stand within my garden view I begin to abandon some of my old thoughts and stand tall with the newness that grows around me.
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

You're back! I didn't realize you would return on the 16th, so I haven't stopped by in a few days. While you were gone I had to start doing my own affirmations, and they were mostly just silly, although this did help me start an art journal. I missed you! Hope you had a nice trip.

Love,
Al

Thank you for your reminder,...
"To Take some Time out to Smell the Flowers"...or is it roses? either way...

Time for Reflection is what i feel, Appreciation and Gratitude for all that is surrounding me, my family, the moments...
I will Cherish and Flow with it all...everyday.

This is wonderful blog!! And the art is so beautiful. I stood in my window this morning and looked at my garden that is "rioting" with growth. There's no thought to limitation. There's a lot of exuberance and joy in my garden--besides tomatoes and cucumbers...
In the garden of our lives, how much joy and exuberance do we allow? I look for my joy every day and it's with me no matter where I go.

I really like this - a different kind of painting style from your usual mandalas. Makes this really interesting. Love the way you've shaded the greens and orange to red. Very effective.

Hi! I've been popping in every now and then but haven't been good about leaving comments. Work and all that. Anyway, I really like this one and how the flowers fill up the whole circle. Lovely.
