In the hottest part of the summer here in Arizona, it is best to water early in the morning (before the sun rises too high) or early evening (just before sunset). One morning when I was outside doing my watering chores, I decided to have my cup of tea outside and take a little me time to relax and reflect. As I sat there – behind me on the trellis was pink jasmine, on the table was a jug of fragrant roses, across the yard were my two lilac trees, and they were all sending out wafts of their particular scents in my direction with the constant breeze that was blowing seemingly from all directions. I looked up and I saw two hummingbirds darting in and out of the sprinklers..taking their morning shower? I could almost see them using tiny towels. From there, almost at the same time – they darted over to my red agave plants, had a bit of breakfast (they are really fast eaters!); then quickly out of sight. For the next two hours I just sat there looking to see what I could see. I found lots to look at and enjoy in my garden but best of all I found such a sense of peace. So that day I didn’t sow anything but the harvest I reaped was really bountiful!!
