Garden Wishes

Garden Wishes. 

Once again I did do a little research on Dragonfly and here’s what I found. 

 A dragonfly is a symbol of change, transformation and self-realization. It teaches us to love life, to rejoice and have faith even amidst difficulties. So, dragonfly meaning is no doubt significant.

And A perfect symbol of what we all have been going through over the last year. It’s hard to believe what we’ve done through. The hardest part for me has not being able to visit with family. With our family living all over Canada and visiting them at least once a year,

 Zoom just doesn’t cut it. But on the bright side everyone is healthy, safe and happy. And for me that’s the main thing in life. 

Oh....here’s another tidbit on Dragonflies 

Dragonflies are natural predators for mosquitoes. In fact, they eat them at all stages of life. An individual dragonfly can eat hundreds of mosquitoes each day. ...
