how much has changed, the ivy (visible in the photo) has been cleared away, and the new flower beds are taking shape around the path built in its place. Digging is underway on a seating area just to the left of the area pictured here.

Even through all the work I’ve been doing, developing the garden, these plants are ones I’ve left untouched. I love them. For me, the cala lily IS everything I love about Easter. On that Easter day in 2007, I needed a miracle.  And on that day in 2007, the flower here finally opened, bathed in that gorgeous light…
