#1 Tour of Douentza Garden in June

    • Thank you, Ghostie. The full quote gives a little more context: β€œDrink wine. This is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you. It is the season for wine, roses and drunken friends. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.”

  1. Thank you for the garden tour. I would love to see your garden personally. However, of course, now is not the time to travel and of all things this morning I saw an article that listed people from 15 countries that can get into any country in Europe but the US is not on that list. I lived in Europe for over 20 years and now I cannot even get back in.
