Takin' it easy

Yep, been moving kinda slow lately.  Doing less but enjoying more.

Mostly savoring moments in the garden.  Life is good. :)


Everything
just as it is,
as it is,
as is.
Flowers in bloom.
Nothing to add.

It is so humid and hot here already, I notice I barely want to go out to just do my watering in the morning. Hope my vegie garden makes it through the summer! Great poem. It really epitomizes how we feel in the heat of summer...just leave it alone and let it do it's thing, eh???

Great title with the turtle sculpture, that is so cute. Taking it easy is something in which I am an expert. Enjoy!

Love the orange and yellow flowers blooming beautiful like that. They warms up the heart. Btw, the ornaments in the first photos are so nice. Love the way you took that 'tortoise' behind the fence. Good shot!

I think we all need to do less and enjoy more, savour the sweet moments of life ...
