Be the change

“I’m convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.”

~ Maya Angelou

      Thank you, Janet. Yes, I find that as I get older, I can relate so much to just about anything Maya said. Lovely spirit and soul; wish I could have met her. ❤

      Thanks, Sheryl. We own a small nursery (ground cover plants) so it helps to have someone who knows what they’re doing. Doubt I’d get very far without his advice. 🙂

      The top few are in our yard; the last few are not. The header photo was taken in a store of hanging baskets in the garden center. Could not resist. 🙂
