Answer to Monday's Riddle! Grow with Love!

My mom is an interior designer. But, in her heart, she's an exterior designer. She loves to tend to her garden and maintains a close, personal relationship with each and every flower and vegetable that she plants. I have even heard her chatting with them, speaking with praise and tenderness. Every summer our garden is amazing. She learned this from my grandmother, and it is something I am looking forward to doing myself one day. When I watch her work, it's like watching someone create a masterpiece. She meticulously manages the life within her sanctuary and the rest of us reap the benefits with wonderful produce and beautiful flowers throughout the entire summer. Towards the middle of August, she lets it all go and enjoys the fruits of her labor. Summertime is all about gardens and we're going to be planting the seeds of imagination this week! ~ F

Seeds of magic from under the earth will dance with brilliance from every new birth. By the hand of a glove, I will grow with love. Tend to me, and give me my needs or I will be taken over by creeping vines and rude weeds. I will bring you flowers and feed you well, even please you with my fragrant smell. I reach for the sun when it's high in the sky. When fall comes to pass, I will say goodbye. But, as the circle turns, I will come again, giving you peace and a moment of zen.

What am I? Answer: A Garden

    1. Hi Annmarie, One of the best flowers in the garden is the Cosmos- they really are like the cosmos, and by the end of the summer, the whole garden is consumed by bright yellow and orange star-like flowers all branching off from the same seed. They are beautious! Thanks for stopping by : ) ~ F
