Oh Sunflower days of September... With crisp morning air and hot afternoon... A familiar breeze filled with memories. Of days gone by and new memories to be collected. The buzzing of the bees, eating ripe tomatoes under the lemon tree...... Continue reading

Could it be that a day like laundry day could set off twinkling stars of inspiration? A basket of delights, tattered frocks for the line.... Zinnias along the way, and a tiny circus suitcase filled with all manner trinketry. Antique... Continue reading

I'm not certain that summer would feel like summer without zinnias. Resilient in the sun, layers of sturdy petals... Gifting endless blossoms as long as you prune. Same for basil and other annuals. They believe their only purpose is to... Continue reading

Christy, I absolutely agree with every single word you have shared and we are doing the exact same thing. Luckily we all work from home and can stay home in my homes as well. We are just trying to stay well and happy in our own bubbles the best that we can. One day when we go back antiquing we will feel so excited and happy about it. I get all my groceries and necessities delivered as well. What an amazing thing that is, isn't it? I talk to my grandmother the other day and her positivity and gratitude for simple things, since she is always at home even before this, was just so inspiring. It's the exact sentiment you have shared here. I love it! <3

Thank you Lisa on the east side! :-) It is certainly important to cage a garden because the critters go bonkers. Just 2 nights ago I saw this giant mouse, or rat, with big rounded ears like a fairy tale creature jumping over the wall and into my garden. He must be the one eating my sugar baby pumpkins :-) Ah well, it's okay in the end, what can one do but :) Take care and happy gardening!
Thank you Dena, you are so lovely! Yes, gratitude can really help us to feel lighter and change our feelings when we need it most. Letting go and exploring, such a great thing <3 <3
Pumpkins, so easy to love <3 :-)
The rain did in fact help with the fire a bit and now i think it is down to the end, if not over. Phew, that lasted what seemed like forever. Gardening really is a way to stay sane, thank goodness for that <3 <3
Thank you dear Cori <3 Yes, and if we are not growing and shifting then where are we, right? Growing and shifting is good, and I love change even if it is tiny, it makes me feel like i am moving forward in some way <3 <3
Thank you Miss Sandra! <3
