Make your own connection...

find inspiration in the smallest things

What happens when you sink your fingers into the soil?

Do  the smells and sounds of the garden take you back - perhaps to a time when the pressures of your day-to-day life, and an uncertain world, did not infuse your every minute?  Perhaps to a memory of a special person who inspired you to look at the world, and yourself, just a little bit differently?  Do you get the same feeling when you walk through the woods, the foothills, the desert or along a mountain stream?  Or is it possible you long to, but never have?  That's ok - make time for that journey soon! 

Maybe your day-to-day life is defined by concrete, asphalt and tall buiildings of glass, brick and steel.  Has a career choice moved you to the urban jungle rather than the gentle forest of your dreams?  Or, were you raised in a world where the sounds of jackhammers, honking cabs or gunfire replace the songs of birds?

No matter your past, present or future connection - GardenOpus is for you. You feel, breathe and dream your love for the Earth  You take simple joy in the care of a single potted plant or the glimpse into a stranger's garden - filled with plants, birds, butterflies and creatures you have yet to know personally. Whatever your age, level of experience in the garden, or current surroundings - it's time to MAKE YOUR OWN CONNECTION.

Please enjoy your visit and I'll do my best to add the kinds of inspired, and inspiring, content that will help make your journey a great one!
