We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
I had my own wee garden, where grew the most lush and sweetest tomatoes on the vine.
Amazing it was to witness the sun shine its Divine rays of Love into the misty quiet hours of the summer morning where time seemed to stand still for just a little while.
The voluptuous tomatoes with their delicious fresh scent filled the air. The left-over dew drops from the cool of the evening before, sparkled with violet light and garnet crystal shimmer.
Green ones and ripe, I would inspect them all for their perfectness
then place them in a wooden basket. With a breath deep into my soul
the fresh moist air embraced the senses with all the sounds and smells of the wondrous summer morn.
Filled I was with great gratitude for these special moments shared in my garden with glorious Mother Nature.
The tomatoes once washed, would be placed whole and still on the vine in the little deep freeze to ensure that there would always be fresh tomatoes in my little larder.
The series 'Lush Eden' celebrates with honor and gratitude our Loving universe for providing the healing rays of sun that make nature’s gifts grow so abundantly.
