My garden, my books my coffee and I am Queen!

Thursday is spent! Good evening - what a beautiful day it was and how lucky I was to spend most of the day in my garden. Now I am a little exhausted from all the raking, forking, digging and sweeping and I bet that tomorrow my gleutus maximus aka my 'butt' is going to show signs of fatigue and pain!!! "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need." Marcus Tullius Cicero My garden, my books my coffee and I am Queen! The challenge is about flowers, so here is a wonderful waterlily - photo taken a while ago in a pond on the Golf Course.

I fully agree with Cicero, I have my garden and we have a library in the house, I cannot ask more.

That's a lovely photo. I have hundreds of books but the computer has sort of taken over from them. I do love my garden though.

Lovely photo. I can't wait for the Spring to arrive here in Canada, so I can rake, weed and plant flowers. Then, I would feel like a queen too.

Your Lilly flower is looking awesome. Loved it. I have a small terrace garden. I love flowers and plants. It is winter here in New Delhi and it is the best season for new plants. In winters flowers survive for longer duration and one could enjoy watching them. Here is a rose from my garden. I do not have any library as such. However, I love to read books and magazines etc.

Cicero was right. But he didn't have coffee. Can you imagine?

I think this is a good concept - a garden and library. However my library far exceeds my garden.
