my beautiful garden

This is my beautiful garden:


The colors are so beautiful this time of year.


I love all the different textures and forms. The changing colors really highlight the diversity. And for some reason, the grey skies and rain seem to make everything glow.

This is the view from my bed. It’s lovely to wake up in the morning and look out and watch the birds.

I feel so blessed to have this little place of peace in my life. I feel like God is blessing me and that my garden is a reminder of God’s presence in my life.


About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
