There's Nothing More Beautiful Than a Garden

Tomatoes, first: plums, heirloom plums, a yellow pear (hidden), cherries and a few volunteer strays; rhubarb, parsley, dill and dill seed, rosemary, basil (both English and Thai), green beans, spearmint tea, chocolate mint tea, lemon balm, peppermint, oregano. Left for another day...the greens, more herbs, more and more. So much my neighbors are feasting too. So much.
I find God/ Goddess/ Powers-That-Be in my garden. In any garden. Growing, giving, nurturing, natural. My days see the divine in the eyes and udders of the goats, the growth of the vegetables, the harsh reality of animal and human birth and death, and the breathtaking beauty of nature. We're all breathing, together. Life's good.
