If You Would Have a Lovely Garden…

There is a Shaker saying: “If you would have a lovely garden, you should live a lovely life.”

The Homeward Bound volunteer gardeners have been hard at work all year creating the beginnings of a lovely Memorial Garden to remember and share with rescued Golden Retrievers (and their Golden friends).  Thanks to all who visit – virtually and in person. Remember to adopt or foster – so they may live a lovely life.

I am a nascent gardener, rescuer, and photographer, chronicling the journey of the dogs at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary near Sacramento, CA - and the Memorial Garden we have devoted to them.
