Spring is a very busy time here on the ranch; getting ready for foals, lots and lots of yard work, and riding. It’s hard to find time in my studio ( aka The Sweat Shop) to design and work on quilts since at the end of the day, I’m usually exhausted. With all there is to do I forget to take time to enjoy the beauty of my gardens and the wild flowers that are so abundant here at Wild Oaks Ranch. I have to promise myself to take at least 10 minutes a day to just sit and enjoy my garden. I love when my Zephririne Drouhin (Cerise pink bloom left upper corner below) is blooming… just one bloom will fill the whole rose garden with the most intense rose smell. I will take time to smell the roses today!
