"We must cultivate our garden."

Voltaire wrote in Candide that "we must cultivate our garden." Besides being one of Steven's favorite books, Diane spent most of her Saturday this past weekend tending to her garden. Even on May 1st (Labor Day or International Worker's Day), the garden store was open. You can see some of the results of Diane's "labor" below.

Remember..."all is for the best in the best of all possible worlds."

These beautiful purple flowers bloom all summer along the fence line.

Our little garden sanctuary. You can see the lattice in shadow where the roses grow.

Some of Diane's flowers.

One of Diane's favorites:Dahlias

The seasons are headed into fall here in South America, so it's so nice to see spring flowers here! Looks like you've got quite a beautiful garden there!
