He who has a garden and a library wants for nothing” Marcus Tullius Cicero

A garden outside and a library inside: add a little music and it sounds like introvert’s heaven. Yes!

The landscapers were busy pruning the trees today and even the garden in process makes for an appealing photograph.

  1. Ah yes, great reading and a beautiful garden! Love your photo, Jamie 🙂 Heading into Spring here, I keep catching the scent of fresh jasmine on the air . . . my all time favourite!


  2. Definitely heaven for this introvert, too! Although, I would be outside digging in the dirt and communing with the plants. Then, after a good, long day of gardening, a shower, big cup of coffee and a good book. Sounds just about perfect! Glad you’re able to enjoy such beauty and share it with us, Jamie. 🙂


  3. Books and music — check. Garden outside — not so much. My landlord just had all the bushes that were providing haven for cardinals, sparrows, chipmunks and cottontails removed. I see those friends no more. He’s planning some ‘landscaping’, but he removed the habitat. Sigh!


  4. I have hired some help with my flower garden – I love the sense of getting everything clean and neat and tidy for winter’s snow and the new growth of next spring. It seems to give me the illusion that I have put my life in order and everything is under control. 🙂


    1. Oh, and you have certainly found my introvert’s heaven. As long as there is coffee or tea available for the library and a window open to the garden. I have several introvert’s heavens constructed in my mind for those times when living in my body gets too difficult.


    2. One of the many blessings of a garden, huh? Here I get to enjoy the garden and have no work to do myself, which is good since I would be unable to manage at this point in my life. I feel like a princess. 🙂 Happy Friday, Pat, and happy weekend.


Thank you!
