“For flowers that bloom about our feet;


For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;

For song of bird, and hum of bee;


For all things fair we hear or see, 


we thank Thee.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

For the peace I have found, the friends I have made and the countless rescued dogs that have touched my heart through my journey with the garden, this blog and Homeward Bound, I am thankful.




“Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors we don’t even remember leaving open.” ~ Rose Lane

I am blessed. Happy Thanksgiving, all.

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.
