The garden is still growing. It's been a lot of work to keep all these plants from drying up and dieing. I might just be one of the few on our block who has green grass in the backyard. I got tired of walking on crunchy grass and pulled out the hose! Mother Nature has given us some relief today, with a few spurts of rain and a wonderful breeze. The pumpkin vines and gourd vines are gracefully climbing the fence and starting to flower. The gourd flowers look like they almost glow as the sun sets.
If you've never experienced the joy of accomplishing more than you can imagine, plant a garden. ~Robert Brault
These last few weeks have been an adventure! We shared many fun filled days at the lake, I taught Nathan the basics of swimming, the kids learned how to skip stones on water (the important things!) We shared a lot of laughter and ice cream!
The yummy double chocolate fudge cake with a strawberry flower, I made on our last day before returning home.
I'm glad we're home and jumping back into our normal routine. I've already started another bag and found an antique cabinet to hold all my paints and some card making supplies too!
I'm undecided if I'm going to paint it, so for now it has clear shelving
liner to protect it from my daily use. Hobbes snuggled right up to it
and got his power nap for the day.
