Yesterday morning Little Man said to me...
"I'll be your best friend forever...even when we're in heaven."
My heart melted...
A MEDITATION ON WHITE SPACE
8 hours ago
|A scarecrow welcomes you to the garden...|
|hummingbirds have been visiting the feeder and hollyhocks...|
|Queen Anne's Lace...|
|more mulberries to turn into cobbler...|
|mulberries ready to be picked...|
|hollyhocks in bloom...|
|"knee high by the 4th of July" so the saying goes,|
but the corn is knee-high now!
|guard dog on duty...|
|a curious cat...|
|sunset at the end of the day...|
|time for chasing fireflies!|
|This is before 7 a.m. and the heat seems to hang in the air.|
|I found these old tubs in the barn|
and decided they needed a second life outdoors.
|The kids' fairy garden |
(complete with a tire swing!)
|I'm so glad I captured this peony one morning...|
later the same day, winds from a passing storm
had blown the petals away.
|This old rose hadn't bloomed in ages, until last year. |
Now, it's blooming again...I'm so thrilled!
|The herb garden right outside our kitchen door.|
It's so handy when I'm cooking, baking herb bread,
or making herbal vinegars at summer's end.
|Old-fashioned peonies are one of my favorite flowers.|
These plants were rescued from an old farmhouse
that was being torn down.
|A shady spot near our front door.|
|“Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; |
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language”
