I am grateful, in a short amount of time I made a friend 'Justin'. Anyone who knows me knows - I am persistent, when I get a good vibe about a person- I want to know more.
I want to surround myself with good vibes in life an on line - why not.
Those who make me smile and feel 'lifted'.
Today, Storm and I were treated to a tour around a huge nursery - Humber Valley Nursery in Toronto by our new friend Justin. How wonderful it was!
Medicine for the mind, eyes & soul right here. Justin has worked with plats forever and you know it, Storm and I have talked all afternoon about things Justin said... little tips, information, fun facts - it was endless - I wished it had been.
Already looking at the photos I wish I was back at the garden - it's o.k. we brought some home with us! Justin also sent me home with a 'Teasing Georgia rose Shrub!'
Hee hee hee. I'm so excited to watch it bloom & we each came home with a little cactus section- we were looking for some time- and to hang out in the 'tropical room'- GO!
I wished I was closer I would bring my water colors! Orange, banana and lemon trees! Nut trees, herbs, grasses- pond stuff- I could wander in there for hours. The feel the smell, colors- energy - plants. medicine, life, inspiration. For the next few days Im painting cacti! I already have one in mind 'with bird. I know why Justin is such a pleasant person, working with plants his entire life has rubbed off on him. ;)
I knew Justin was a fan of my art work and I see he has his friendly feline posted on Instagram so I decided very last minute to paint him a gift to bring to say thank you for the tour - I am so glad I did!
As with all work I put much TLC with THC into all I paint.
I just knew Justin was going to be a really interesting, nice, person.
How terrific when we get that vibe. I am thankful. I needed it today.
The plants. Spending the day with Storm walking around- surrounded by gifts of life- nature- plants and Justin. Today was a great day.
Poppy enjoyed herself as well, you know I forget about her- unless she stands on my leg to remind 'I'm here.' Thankful.
