My home and my garden are my sanctuary. In this age where there is so much anger being stoked and vented against so many, I need this sanctuary and this garden to cultivate peace and tranquility, and dare I say it, a little love towards the most vulnerable among us, our pets.
This is Annie, the Labradoodle. She gives love unconditionally and as often as possible, which for a dog is to say nearly all the time. She only stops when she’s sleeping, and even then she will cuddle up close while she sleeps.
I have the other three, Ruby the Yellow Lab, and Bo and Luke the Gingers. They all live together in peace and help to foster a peaceful environment.
Here’s one of my wife’s roses, a red we picked up on sale at the local Costco. It grows next to the yellow rose I’ve written about earlier. These flowers add to the calmness of this sanctuary in my back yard.
