She just couldn’t …



The blooms of summer …

My farm grandma grew all of these same flowers and put them in Mason jars filled with well water … exactly this way. My throat is choked with memories this morning …



There will be grace.



The best-laid plans … or something …

Apparently, without meaning to, I’ve taken a summer break from blogging.  It’s the heat, people.  That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.  I wander in, briefly look around, wander back out.  I miss you all and entertain daily good intentions to catch up on your stuff … and next thing you know I’m in my recliner sipping an iced tea or a frosty Greyhound and playing Candy Crush on my iPad.  Oh, the shame.  Okay, confession over … I feel all better now!  Thanks for listening.  I’ll be back on the job soon … meanwhile, here are some delightful graphics for your viewing pleasure.  Happy Summer, everyone!



It’s the little things …

The instant I saw this, my grandma with the enormous flower garden was by my side.  I could smell the sweet pungent mix of peonies and roses and other blooms, and feel the cool texture of the crock in my hands.  Spring lives on forever.



Today is Father’s Day …

I love this so much!



Never, never, never!!

This, my friends, is critical.  Write it down!



Preaching to the choir …

Preaching to myself, actually.



Well, fudge …

My poor little blog is suffering from extreme neglect.  Mama’s just been soooooooo busy!  Don’t give up on us, friends and neighbors … we’re comin’ back.
