Glorious Gardens

What is heaven?  Being raised in a culture  where we were taught all good people go to heaven, as a child I often visualized what my heaven would look like.  For years I thought it would be an expansive beach.  I would walk along the water’s edge picking up broken shells and putting them back together.

But as I’ve aged I now believe I have found heaven on earth.

It is a place where I toil from morning to evening co-creating a living canvas.

Colors blend, creatures thrive and happiness abounds.

  1. When I was little, I visualised Heaven as a constant supply of paper, paints and crayons! Now, I quite agree, gardens can be heavenly places .. and yours is so lovely!

  2. I only needed to read the first few words of your post – what is heaven? The answer was immediately – it’s in Bonnie’s garden! Really beautiful Bonnie. 🙂 Smiles and happiness just to look at pictures of your heavenly creation first thing on a Monday morning.

      1. A corner of heaven, indeed. We are having a late, but nice spring, here in southern Ontario. Some winter damage, but to be expected after a harsh winter in Canada. What region are you in and does that mean you can plant all sorts of things?

      2. I live in the Lehigh Valley in eastern Pennsylvania about 60 miles west of NYC and 70 miles north of Philly it’s zone 6B and yes I had a lot of winter damage too. Last winter was the 4th snowiest winter on record. So glad it’s over!
