Gardens Of Art

--by oregonrawk, posted Aug 7, 2012

Our neighbor grows the most amazing gardens! They are real works of art. The beauty she creates spills out even to her neighbor's yards with amazing displays of color. 

Out front her husband and her have a honor system pay box where they put out affordable pottery and bouquets that cost much less than you would pay anywhere else. Because they do that I can afford to buy them and give them as gifts to my family and others. 
This year I have volunteered my time to help her in the garden; to help in the beautification of our neighborhood.

It brings me such joy to serve her and others. I hope my happiness spills out in love and joy to others who, in turn, pay if forward with goodness all around our beautiful town.

Heart and mind feels sympathy
Pleases the eyes, and nose
Generous in working and passing time
Sure the passer by aims and stays
For a while appreciating the artistry
Targeting others to intrigue is appreciable

"i would rather have fresh flowers on my table than diamonds in my ears"
