Quiet Moment

Sitting outside a while ago, taking a moment to just admire the garden, stop moving, not working on a project, not thinking about working on a project, just sitting still and soaking it all up, something we gardeners don’t do enough of I’ll wager. And here came the chickadees, one, two, three, four, five in a row, to have a little bath in the waterfall. Delightful.
