Oh, my dear, do not go our into that burning July sun without me. I am here to protect you – and to make you look stunning. Everybody needs a hat that looks good and protects them. Those laugh lines near your eyes – I must say you wear them well. They make you look fun and interesting. But you have just enough – you don’t need any more. So toss me onto your head every time you go outside. Don’t forget the sunscreen on the way out the door too – and the lotions later. You deserve to be treated special – so do it!
Love, Your Garden Hat
ABOUT LOVE NOTES: I wanted to create a way to bring the garden into people’s minds with a weekly email, but not with a to-do list that just adds to the overwhelm of a busy life. A garden does take maintenance and care, but gives so much back to its caregiver. ‘Love Notes from the Garden’ help to guide and inspire with gentle nudges and a bit of humor, reminding people that the garden responds when you care, that each plant has a personality, that your garden is a habitat filled with change and wonder.
