The Pansies

Standard

All of these products will be used before the day is over for sore muscles from raking, moving around and spreading heavy mulch bags, trimming butterfly bushes, digging to plant pansies and basically getting my yard ready for spring when WINTER decides to let go ūüĆłNontoxic

City Market Goodies

Standard

One of my many favorite things to look forward to after winter are our city markets.
I am tryin’ a couple of new ones at the present.¬† One is an all organic market and another has a few vendors with pesticide free produce and organic. Always lookin’ for the freshest quality ingredients I can find.¬† My mission was to bring back some more Goliath tomatoes which have been the best I have had so far. Since it was snowing still in May here( which I never remember it doing) the tomatoes are a little late. I also scored with some delightful beets, corn, mint and pattypan squash. I am going to use some of the mint in ice cream after steeping it and the squash came home with more understanding on bees and their importance.¬† Of course there was a lady selling some flowers that could be used to replace the pansies since they are getting to hot now. Twas’ a lovely day!Image

I asked the man why my squash had blooms but not fruit.  He explained to me the bee has to travel from the female to male areas and in the case of the pattypan, I guess because of their location, sometimes one is missed.

If my garden could talk………….

I do believe I will stop at the drive up and get me some sweets on my way back home.

Image

I don’t know ….should I go with the pink bottoms and orange top?

Image

I think we are shopping at the same store….BRIGHT.

Image

I could use a rub or even a touch…your time with me will linger on you.

Image

Peekaboo…..I have a friend over for the afternoon.

Image

Am I dressed too fancy for afternoon tea?

Image

You mean because we are wearing a crown???

Image

I’m new here in this garden…..do I fit in???

Image

Bumblebees are my favorite customers.

If this lady would have planted me in more sunshine this outfit would have been a deeper purple.

I believe i am the fairest of them all.

There is only one of me in this garden so I have been moved to the shady spot by the front door.

I have the best seat in the house.¬† I also am a little flawed, but aren’t we all.

Spring break

Standard

O.K. folks…

It’s been a while since I have been here but I am back.¬† After a very long winter in our part of town, spring/summer has arrived. April and May are my favorite months but not this year.¬† It was still snowing here in May.¬† Ridiculous! So……………..I went to the beach to refresh my spirit and clear my mind.¬† So glad I did!!!

I am hoping to start a new business before the summer is over and HOPEFULLY write a book with a friend in the near future. We will see how it all goes.  I also am attending a counseling class over the summer and seeing an alternative new doctor for ongoing health issues. No drugs just supplements.  I will keep you posted on my progress.

Learning new things about this human body that are amazing.  How the mind can hurt or heal our bodies has been very interesting. Still evolving in my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self.

Now that  the weather is nicer I have been doing a lot of picture taking.  A passion that I love.

Don’t know how my straw bale garden is going to turn out this year with all the weird weather we have had so I kind of bought me a garden at the city market.¬† Potted tomatoes, multicolored peppers, cucumbers, lettuce bowl and a chard spinach bowl.

Big thunderstorm this morning but now the sun is shining brightly again.  My clue to get away from the computer and get some sunshine.
