Where Do You Find Peace?

Are you a ‘soon as your head hits the pillow you are out’ kind of person or does it take some time to find that inner peace before drifting off to sleep land? I don’t usually have a hard time falling to sleep even during the busy times in my life over the past year and I believe it because my evening relationship with my instagram app.  At the end of each day I’ve made it a ritual to cuddle up with my ipad or iphone and do a quick recap of the garden from past and present.  Reaching out to over 100 million users is the last thing on my mind as I drift off to the peaceful gardens in dreamland.

  1. I am a terrible sleeper! My husband goes to sleep within minutes of laying down while I’m still lying there. Awake. Some of us just aren’t good at sleeping, I suppose. When I’ve got more photos of instagram, I might try your methods of meditating over beautiful memories before drifting off.

  2. Your autumn rose is gorgeous! I love, love the color. I once planted one, but sadly it suffered terribly from black spot and eventually perished.

    Bren, also thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comment! I look forward to exploring your own blog and seeing more of your beautiful photos.

    1. Thank you for stopping by Deb! Let me know if you decided to get a new rose – I would love to help you with growing tips if I can! There are so many new varieties out that are super easy to grow. Have you tried Knock-Outs or some of the Proven Winner varieties! EASY… hard to kill!

      1. Oh, yes, knock-outs bloom almost continuously, a good ten months out of the year for me. They are very popular roses in my part of the country, for good reason. I also have some rugosas and a wonderful Penelope that grow well.

        Thanks again for your interest in my blog, and for subscribing! I appreciate it.
