Does your garden have a lady-in-waiting?
Wednesday, June 04, 2008
Please allow me to introduce you to my lady-in-waiting. She was waiting here for us when we bought our home. The previous owners, he was a Doctor and she was an Artist. They built our home and she sculpted this stone lady. We placed her here and every day she waits for me. Look closely, inside her folded arm is a birdbath and often she allows the birds to find repose. She has been thoughtful, attentive and waiting to be repaired as she has weathered the seasons. Each morning, she reminds me to keep calm and then come evening, she bids me adieu.
