Our gardens are beginninbg to take on different shades.
The flowers of summer are giving way to the colours of autumn.
Count your garden by the flowers,
never by the leaves that fall.
Count your days by the golden hours,
don't remember the clouds at all.
Count your nights by the stars,
not by shadows.
Count your life with smiles not tears,
and with joy through all your life.
Count your age by friends not years.
