FRIENDSHIP

 My Desert & the Angel

   
God exists in and through Its creation.
There is no place where God stops and does not exist.
We are all connected, all One in God.

When I pointed out my desert to My Garden Angel she sprang into action. Her halo tilted a little to one side as she noticed the barren, weed covered yard of our next door neighbor. She quickly recovered, straightened it, and began to dig up the ground and pour bags and bags of cactus soil in, mixing it with our awful clay soil.              

The next time she came over she had a box of what she called our “friendship garden.” Just like Mary Poppins (who she claimed to be) she began pulling things out of her box. She had tons of interesting succulents and began placing them in the area and moving them around until we were both satisfied. “I think we need a couple of large boulders, don’t you?” I asked.           

Our Desert

 

               

My Garden Angel, alias Mary Poppins, quickly agreed and the next time she came she began rolling very large and heavy rocks one at a time out of her tiny sports car. As we worked on our desert people began stopping and commenting on its beauty. Originally I had found many succulents with purple in them, but the color soon expanded. Being a Feng Shui Consultant in my spare time I wouldn’t allow any pointy cactus in my yard which frustrated Mary Poppins a little.

I bought a large yellow Kangaroo Paw and a small red one in that variety as a point of interest. However, the rabbits came back in force and ate them way down. “Oh No you don’t.” said Mary Poppins and we found a rabbit repellent that works. But you have to replace it every 2 weeks. We spent untold hours working and playing in our desert. One day a couple came walking by and the woman said, “This is really beautiful. We could do this easily.” Out of their eyesight, we looked at each other and giggled. “Easy? Huh!” Mary Poppins whispered.
