My brother is moving this week, and while it’s always exciting to move on in life, it can also be very bittersweet. He had a large, beautiful garden but I think my favorite part of it was the potting shed tucked in the far corner.
While his family was busy at their new home, unpacking and trying to make order of their new surroundings, I spent a quiet evening in their garden saying goodbye.
I love the soft shell pink colors of the climbing ‘Colette’ rose growing along the side. It seems to do quite well despite the fact that it gets very little sunshine against this wall. I must remember to see if there’s a spot in my garden for a beauty like this.
On the side shelf I noticed a discarded, crumpled up paper bag filled with what I thought was trash.
Until I noticed a little wren hopping around with a little bug in its mouth.After the mother bird left, I peeked inside to find three little birds happily living in this bag. What a happy ending to this bittersweet day!
