In your garden 2010: Entry 8

This is a corner of my garden, where I find solace from the daily swirl. It is an oasis of calm where one can watch chipmunks, squirrels, and many species of birds and butterflies.

In the evening the crickets, locusts and frogs call to one another. It’s a wonderful place to just “sit a spell.”

Mert Mullins lives in the Huntington area.
