Weekly Photo Challenge: Refuge


Garden - July 2010


The garden is my refuge from all the competing priorities in my life. When I am in the garden, there is only this seedling to be planted, this weed to be pulled, this seedbed that needs to be prepared, this tomato that is ready to be picked, this compost that must be spread.

Planning the garden and all its accompanying tasks can drive me nutty, as there is always a long list of things to complete, but the doing of those tasks, one at a time, brings peace to my heart and calms my soul.
