As I was driving home tonight, the sky was a delicious shade of pink with whisps of white fog billowing as if it were an ice cream sundae with streams of cherry juice running through a huge scoop of vanilla. I absolutely adore living where I do even if we do experience foggy days. I certainly prefer it to the heat other parts of the Bay Area endures. The soft blanket of fog nurtures Creativity in women, men, children, and all varieties of plant life. My garden not only grows, it thrives here on the Coastside. Nature is responsible for the lush green vegetation’s bountiful beauty. I take no credit for it because despite the fact I am a farmer’s daughter, I only posesses an appreciation of gardening – I do not have an affinity for it. It is embarassing to admit, but many a plant has died before it’s time because it was left in my care. I recognize my role is to admire the abundant display of Nature and praise her repeated accomplishments. Also, to lavish words of encouragement and gratitude. My hope is that you too have a quiet garden spot to visit and spend some quality time with yourself while reveling in the bounty of Nature. If not, I urge you to seek one out – you should see what you’re missing!
