~evidence of lily beetle damage on leaves~
~lots and lots of blooms~
Aaah, summer — that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It's a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.
Letting Go is when you find release; Letting God is when your heart finds peace.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.Proverbs 3:5–6
I wish all my fair sisters would set apart a portion of their home grounds for a garden. A good flower garden exerts a powerful aesthetic side of the home life, and the vegetable garden contributes to the family's health and economy...
Best for the lady who tends the garden, though, is that life-giving something in the very smell of the ground... And when long summer days come, when the lady drops her endless sewing and gathers what she has grown in anticipation of a fresh meal — a vase of colorful blooms upon the table to meet the family when they sit — she will come back with lighter step and rosy cheeks. This is not romance, but sound common sense.
Hope that your garden is growing. Mine is, even if a bit skimpy this year. It still pleases my eye even if it'll not please my plate. Comments are closed today because I am having such trouble keeping up this week.
Enjoy your day!
