Angels of the Morning – take a walk in the garden

You haven’t heard from me in awhile, dear readers, and the reason why is I’ve been collecting my things and finding a new home and garden in which to dwell. And once several hours of dirt digging has taken place, and some sweat on sunny days – my spirit begins to connect with the earth, and Pachamama, in the landscape where I live.

I have tumbled onto a little wedge of paradise, and I’m so grateful. The beautiful souls who live here, have created oasis’s of beauty everywhere your eyes can look. I got up early and was out the door to head back and water the vegetable beds this morning, but my heart leapt when I decided to take a few photos first.

Nearly an hour later, I came back down to earth. You can nearly float – uplifted in beauty here. The flowers and the light are so exquisite! When I photographed the white irises, I found myself whispering “angels of the morning.” When you come to their photograph, I think you will agree.

So please, walk with me now, and bend down close to these incredible creations of nature. They are so beautiful and they smell so good. Just watch out for the bees!

Throngs of fragrant, stunning iris are popping up everywhere.

It’s a wonderful organic tumble of loveliness!

Phlox, and peonies, and more iris…

it really can’t be more glorious than this:

wet poppies, underneath the morning sky.

If you want to stop and pull a few weeds for us…

we’d love that. 🙂

Just like we love the bees on the raspberry flowers.


And sun light through overwintered chard.


Sage plants about to burst into flower –


Blue flax like little stars flecked across the grass…

white cushiony tufts, bursting from onions


Heady in love! Oh, you simply must stop to drink in this fragrance:


and spot the asparagus, catching morning rays of sun.


The red clover’s dotted with droplets of water like clear jewels.

Miracles are where ever you look.

And sometimes dandelions, and dozens of baby thistles, and sneaky bindweed … oh yeah, there’s that part, too.


When you’re finished helping, just put your garden tools away!


And give blessings, to all the gardens of the world, and to everyone who tends them.

May we all know peace, and have nourishing food to eat, and may it be grown with love.

    The ‘angels’ are beautiful! Whenever I see sunlight like that in the garden I always have to run back in for my camera. I love the way it halos behind the petals. Hope your move went well -your new garden looks lovely.

    1. Aren’t they lovely? Thanks so much! I love the halo effect, too. If I didn’t love to eat so much, I think I could live on light and beauty! 🙂 I had so much help from friends and family for my move, thanks again. The owners of the property have lived here 40 years and LOVE the earth and gardening, as you can see. Blessings to them!

    Hi Margaret..Love reading your lovely words.. For whatever reason, I’m unable to access your photos…I tried cutting and pasting but that didn’t do it either.

    I think it may be my Mac…It acts up on accessing certain files…

    If you have a tip for me, I shall love it…Love, Sharon

    1. Hi Sharon, thanks so much for your kind words. I wanted to ask you, have you been able to view the photos on my blog before? I haven’t changed anything as far as uploading pictures or posting. *You could maybe try accessing through Facebook. I have posted it there too. Blessings, Margaret

    Thanks for sharing this rich, ripe beautiful vision. I could feel my heart throbbing as I looked at the photos. You have a gift of capturing the miracles of life on this wondrous planet dear Margaret!

    1. Thank you so much Lois! Yes, I agree, the flowers speak to our hearts, don’t they? Blessings!

  4. Growing with LOVE!!

    1. Oh yes, Dennis! Thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂

  5. This is such a glorious time of year, thanks for sharing your piece of heaven with us, Margaret. When I am in my garden, I can forget about the state of the world and just tend to the state of nature – what a relief!

    1. Agreed! And thank you for stopping by this little piece of heaven. I hope your garden is lovely and healthy this year so far, too!

      1. Yes, the garden is alive and well (and so are the weeds). I discovered a robin’s nest with 4 beautiful, sky blue eggs in my elderberry bush. What a gift!

      2. How sweet, I saw a robin’s egg shell on the ground, here, so I know babes are likely in a nearby nest. I’m glad you’re garden’s off to a good start! Blessings!
