Quotes #21, 2017 – 1st June 2017 Garden

Dear Friends and Quote Lovers across the entire world.

Yet another week has gone by and we are in June, in the UK we are having some lovely weather and it so nice.   I use to like gardening, then it went away when my dad passed away 24 years ago, then I got myself back into  the gardening mood. But then it went again over the last 4 years or so.  So this year I had to enlist the help of gardener to do the hard sweat and make it manageable for me to up keep it.

This post is going include photos of my garden (it is not great); that is, to kill two birds with one stone; that is ,  I don’t take enough photos for my blog, and secondly to act as memory of what my garden was in May/June 2017 so later on in the year I can see how well I have progressed !

So here we go,  in amongst the garden you will find a quote or two – hope you enjoy. 

P.S. the garden is small but it is too much for me to handle – wish me luck.  PPS the grass is a bit -but it will improve later on.   PPSS I am no good at taking Photos so forgive in advance.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.   Lao Tzu


Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values. –  Dalai Lama


Motivation is what gets you started.  Habit is what keeps you going.  – Jim Rohn


Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.  – Dalai Lama


Courage is a kind of salvation – Plato



The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.  – Marcus Aurelius



I learnt that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but  he who conquers that fear.  – Nelson Mandela

  1. Love your flowers, Bella! I get it about your love/hate relationship with gardening. My mother had a green thumb, which I inherited, and I love gardens and flowers, birds and nature, etc. I have several gardens at my house, and lately I feel that it is getting to be too much to upkeep. However, when I get it all done and can sit on the patio and be surrounded by nature’s beauty, it seems worth it. Would like a little less weeding and mulching, though! Next place I live, I want to concentrate on container gardening. So much easier!

    1. Gloria, you garden sounds lovely and several gardens – wow can image the work. I can’t handle my little patch. I want to pack it out in plants and may be less weeding – may be?


  2. I don’t know why you think it isn’t much, I think your garden is beautiful!! What a blessing to have all that beauty right there to enjoy. The inspirational quotes are wonderful 🙂 Thanks for sharing both of those nourishing things, lovely flowers and words. :):)
