  3. Beautiful images, Debi! 💕💖 It is so hard to loose photos on our computers but I do believe we have them forever in our hearts. 😊


  4. In my view, i Will like to take it in a different direction. Both gardens oast and present are sweet not minding ones richness or level of poverty. You will become overwhelmed with joy or otherwise depending on how you use your garden. Your garden determines you r place of stay withe God(paradise/hell). So , take care of yours so as to apeace


  5. that’s so beautiful, dear Debi. Flowers always overwhelm me with their beauty, and your photos are really wonderful, like a dream, cheers Mitza
