I know that the Holiday season can be truly challenging for many; a poignant reminder of those we have lost, worries about the future, job uncertainties and more. In such circumstances it can be hard to find joy and celebrate the season. While I don't have all the answers, I can tell you that time and again I have found my garden to be my sanctuary; a place of solace and peace.
And so my wish for you this Christmas is that you are able to find moments of joy in nature. In the sparkling frost that covers the skeletal tree branches, in the cry of an eagle as it soars overhead, in the music of a bubbling fountain, in the beauty of a winter sunrise. May you be able to capture these moments and hold them as a promise of peace in the future even if you struggle to find it today. From my garden to yours.
Thank you all for your encouragement and for making my days brighter with your lovely emails, smiles and hugs.
