“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace."
It was the last week of a semester and the first week that I focused on Christmas preparations and gift shopping. There were also after school activities for the kids, my birthday mid-week, and school holiday parties on Friday. After that week, which passed in a snow-white blur, I need to take a deep breath and consider the wisdom of May Sarton's words. I need to be set back into the slow circles of nature, as she suggests, though the garden trails are thick with snow.
If you have time this week for a Sunday Stroll, to walk into whatever weather December offers, please about about it on your blog and then come back here with a comment and a link to your post. You may use the Sunday Stroll button at the top of this post on your post or sidebar if you would like. I will add participant names to this post so that other strollers may walk through your garden too. I'll check back as often as my day allows and try to keep the list updated. Enjoy the day!
Look who is strolling today:
Ruth at Musings of an Everyday Woman
Margaret at Periodic Pearls
Abbie at Farmer's Daughter
Me, here at the Quiet Country House
