it takes courage to gain peace…


usually, every spring…i go in search of something new for my outdoor garden beds. this year i am moving into an apartment with my two children. a single mom. but a happier one. i put together a garden that is going to move with us. i put a dollar tree mirror on the bottom added my favorite rocks i’ve found & bought. used the dish holder for the bird that used to live here. white pots & wee house plants. AND one beautiful frog. it takes courage to gain peace.

    Love the rock and the Buddha frog. Good garden Amy.


    1. i swear that frog keeps me from flying into pieces. the boxes full of things i don’t have room for make me nuts. then i look at the frog & i am calm. crazy, huh? perhaps that was why i coveted for so long–to remind me to be still.

    You are so right Amy. You have made such a special portable garden. I so wish you well in your new home


    1. Karen, it is so hard to think of living without dirt. it was a safe haven…when i saw the tiny house plants, i thought it is something i can change when i like. i like it can hold small things that have a large meaning to me. there is one rock, polished by my mom, She calls them ‘worry stones’ you keep them in your pocket & the smooth feeling can relax me. And that rock was picked up by my mother on an island in the middle of Lake Champlain, Vermont. I love this new life & it has just BEGUN. ๐Ÿ™‚ wonderful to ‘see’ you. i do hope you are well & happy. ~amy

    Great decorating. I too am going single, soon. Be well. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป


    1. Thanks! Plants do change the feel of any space…because it is life & dependent on you. that is something. I love single. i love crawling into my bed & read whenever i want. have cereal for dinner, or a handful of nuts. my music LOUD & singing. single means you can be yourself completely. you can learn from the past. then let it go. Cheers & luck, John. ~amy


    2. get some plants. that way your don’t live without another life. plus they change the feel of any room & they clean the air you breath. I love single. i love that i can totally be myself, swear like a sailer, blast my music & dance a blue streak around my art studio. i am me again. Good luck to you, John.
