Empowering you to create greater health & well-being through Yoga!
Return to the garden
As July unfolded, I spent more time each week at the studio, teaching classes, cleaning the space for students to join us, and making plans for the future. It was wonderful to be there again and feel its peaceful nature!

But each evening I felt the tug of the garden, the need to step back from the world a bit and feel the blessings of nature once again. All the perennial beds are showing the ravages of heat, but the vegetable garden is flourishing with summer's bounty: corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, and peppers ... with melons and okra just making their debut. There is nothing more nourishing to the soul than digging into rich soil, watering burgeoning growth, and searching the rows for fresh vegetables to pick for dinner!
There is also a spot of freshness in the yard just now - a garden bed at our front door blooming in sweet wildflowers emerged from seeds thrown willy-nilly onto the soil in late spring. I love the serendipitous nature of its delicate form and color, especially for so late into summer's heat - a reminder that life is always regenerating and often in bright and surprising ways.

Look to your own life for moments of surprise and be delighted by what appears!

brimming with garden love,
Carla
