How many ladies get to kiss their gardener I wonder? I do!
My gardener came this morning to do his 2 hour stint.
I actually did some baking this morning. I made some sugar free shortcakes for Freddie
 and a sultana cake. My gardener enjoyed some fresh from the oven and a large slice of cake.
 And of course you all know my gardener is my wonderful grandson, Richard.
My dearest son and I had a long chat on the phone too this morning.
How blessed I am!

Give me enough tears to keep me human,
Enough humour to keep me wise.
Enough setbacks to keep me humble,
Enough accomplishments to keep me confident and
Enough patience to teach me waiting.
Enough hope to keep me trusting,
Enough friends to give me love and
Enough memories to give me comfort.

Hi, June! I love your "secrets" collage, and your story about your morning. You are very fortunate to have loving family nearby.

Really love this piece June - it looks as though you have made it by hand. Gorgeous image of the girls on the books and the text behind really sets it off.
Sounds like you have had a great morning.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Mmmmmm, looks like these little ladies have much to whisper about .... a gorgeous collage. I also loved your quote and your post too. May your day continue as it started, my friend.

Very lovely secrets collage.

Great piece, June. You should post it over at Digital Whisper, if you haven't already. You are very blessed to have a son and grandson to assist with your yard. I can smell the fresh baked cookies all the way to Idaho.
