It has been a bittersweet week, and more than ever, I find myself turning to the garden for solace. How magically it is able to soothe frazzled nerves, act as a balm against the abrasive sting of grief, and to remind me that the greatest beauty in the world belongs to Nature itself.
When I created Teza’s Garden, it was as a place to house an inventory of rare and unusual perennials, but in the past week I realize that I was remiss – in fact it was more about creating a personal sanctuary of beauty and tranquility, allowing myself a space where I could step into the cooling shade of foliage and leave the outside world behind, if only for a fleeting moment. I fall on my knees in gratefulness!
Here is where I shall come to reminisce, to transform grief into celebration, and to give thanks for the beauty and friendship that touched my life, and most importantly, for the beauty that continues to do so on a daily basis. Many thanks to those who offered kind words of support.
