Sunday Reflections…

I was up early to drink coffee and enjoy these wonderful morning temperatures 😊 We were up late last night seeing over the latest Moonlight Pond Tour event. What a wonderful, beautiful night! The weather was perfect & so many people came through to look at the Gardens & Ponds.

It was such a perfect night for a Pond Tour! I just Love this Waterfall! ❤️

Jo and I spent the majority of the night at the nursery selling tickets and visiting with friends new and old. We saw lots of family’s young and old alike, just enjoying being outside in the garden, under the Harvest Moon 🌝 It made me think of this poem by Carl Sandburg-

“Under the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.
Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.”
   ~ Carl Sandburg

Thanks to everyone who participated and donated to the Jackson Animal Care Center! And a very special Thank You to the wonderful Homeowners who allowed us all to stroll through their Gardens in the Moonlight 🌕❤️

Have a Wonderful Sunday!
