Last Christmas, my neighbor and dear friend, the very talented Susie Chandler, aka Susie Next Door, aka SND, presented me with a spectacular little book of photos she’d taken across time of my garden.

Here we are in a cold, snowy, rather difficult spring (fan though I am of Big Weather and of snow and rain, it’s been rough). To cheer myself up, I keep Susie’s book by my side. It and she are such blessings. She’s made my garden seem much more beautiful than I suspect it really is, nevertheless, profound promise and hope are contained in these pages — and that is what beauty offers us.
