the most valuable things

I am so happy to receive your lovely comments about my garden.  I have put much work into it since we moved here several years ago. It was slow in coming along.  This was the first year that I wasn't able to do anything due to my accidents during the winter months. To my surprise, everything grew taller and fuller and bloomed better ... what a joy!  It would be so nice to have you all over for tea!

The most valuable things
In life are priceless
They are Courage,
And Wisdom
Respect for ourselves
And others
And a host of characteristics
That we call
The beauty of the human spirit

I don't know who wrote this and I can't remember where I found it, but this little verse has been pinned to my desk for quite some time ... just wanted to share it with you.

The weekend is coming close ...  a wonderful thought :)
Thank you for visiting! Enjoy your day!


  1. I wish you would come on over and help me garden! Such a lovely garden Susanne!

  2. Would love to come over for tea! Your garden looks beautiful and inviting Susanne!

  3. That first picture could be a spot in our gardens! Keep posting these pictures when you can, Susanne - they are food for the soul. Love that quote, also. For all the bad in the world that gets publicized, I'm so happy to know that there is an abundance of good, also.

  4. Such a lovely garden nurtured by a lovely soul!
