If you've read my last post, you've probably figured out that I'll be struggling with the loss of my brother for some time to come. Right now, I don't have the heart to write much but instead of putting the blog on hiatus (like I've done in the past after traumatic events) I thought I would try just posting some current photos. I don't know how long I'll follow this format? Until I can do better, I suppose.

Many thanks to each and every one of you who have reached out to me. Your comments, cards, calls, etc., have touched me immeasurably. It will take a long time to heal. Like I said before, it's a loss for the rest of my life. Neither my brother or I were married so I guess we leaned on each other more than a lot of siblings would. I'm only at the beginning stages of figuring out how to live without him. I start to think I'm okay then something will happen ~ like scrolling thru my phone & seeing his name/number & suddenly, I'm right back where I started. Lately, I feel like I'm getting it together on the outside but inside, just under the surface, there are always tears. His death is one in a series of losses over the past few years for me and some difficult times as well. After each one I have said I needed the garden more than ever. There is no time that is truer than now. Thank you in advance for your gentleness, compassion and understanding.
