Barefoot in the Garden

Window greenhouse surrounded by a cottage garden.

Of all the pains I've known,
of loss and heartsickness and physical woe,
I have yet to find a pain that
is not made a lighter load
by being barefoot in the garden.


A dog in the cottage garden.
I want to share this beautiful life with others and teach them the lessons we've learned along the way. Welcome to Roots and Refuge, friend. I am so glad you're here.
