Looks like a scene from one of those huge oil on canvas golden- framed pieces of art at the met minus the angels right there in my own back yard.
I was surrounded on all sides with some of the most beautiful clouds I’ve ever seen, with wet clothes (half sweat/half rain), cooling air, darkening skies. Time to go inside and relax after a sweltering muggy slow day at the nursery.
Like I always say, there’s more to working in the yard than working in the yard. The challenges, the physical activity, the sights, sounds, scents all inspire me, and help me realize that every day up there is different. Ahhhh, it’s great to be alive!!!
