“Dark clouds become heaven’s flowers when kissed by light.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
We were blessed to wake to rain early Saturday morning.
We are grateful for every drop during this long drought. Rain meant a day of dogs instead of gardening. Time with the pups; another blessing.
Sunday, then, brought twice the load of garden chores; fall is such a busy time in the garden – second only to spring. The day also began with a beautiful fog blanketing all of Homeward Bound including our Memorial Garden.
The soft light captured the fall colors and turned them into illuminated canvases.
Peaking through, I caught a glimpse of couple of favorites out for a stroll: Miss Dazy…
And Victor Mature.
Inside the shed, I found this touching note:
To the garden angels,
This is Rusty’s companion, Rosie. Three weeks after we lost him to Hemangiosarcoma, she let us know she couldn’t go on without him and we lost her, too. Could you put her in the rose garden next to Rusty?
They belong together.
“Be still, sad heart! And cease repining; behind the clouds is the sun still shining; thy fate is the common fate of all, into each life some rain must fall.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This is just beautiful. I’m glad that you got the much needed rain.
Oh those blue eyes are spectacular. Congrats on the rain! Still none here~
From the sounds of things, you’ll see yours this winter. We’re jealous. Not good news for us up north.
The pix are gorgeous, as always! So sad about Rusty and Rosie! My heart goes out to all who loved them. But they are together, playing at the bridge.
If there was an Oscar for meaningful blogs, I would nominate you. The way you weave beautiful photos, heart wrenching stories and happy endings is amazing. Wonderful post. 🙂
Awww…thank you. You made my Monday!
Leaky eyes here – how beautiful.

I love seeing Rosie and Rusty finally together again in the beautiful garden. To paraphrase someone, it’s a little piece of heaven on earth…..
