Camera ran out of batteries...but

completed quart #9 of raspberries

today

***********************

The summer sun has stepped aside

to welcome autumn's rain...

cool and quite refreshing

as it comes down again

Sprinkling the dry, parched fields

and washing off the leaves...

The first small signs of Autumn

resting, early, on the trees...

**********************************

another morning find..

chicken of the woods mushrooms, zucchini and another cucumber.

Goodbye Summer

It's getting that time

The sun's in full throttle

the wind, close behind...

Everything's ripened

tho' still on the vine...

Can autumn be far off

is summer behind?

In between stages

will bring all things new

when green leaves turn gold

with their bright autumn hue.

YESTERDAY AND TODAY'S RASPBERRY YIELD

QUART #8 FILLING UP

 

********************************

Sunday, Aug. 10th

The Lord's Day of Rest

It's the Lord's Day of Rest

Time to ponder and pray

Time to look on His word

Read the scriptures today...

Time to spend with the ones

God has given to you

To share peace and love

ever faithful and true...

Chicken of the Woods wild mushrooms straight from the 'woods'

growing on an oak stump....hubby's morning adventure...

***********************************************

 

Every summer day goes by

with things we have to do

Through the sun and through the rain

we work and play, it's true

One thing could go unnoticed

it doesn't make a sound

it's beautiful and colorful

and sets there on the ground...

We never see its movement

but, everybody knows

if we're awake, or we're asleep

somehow....the Garden grows.
