Strawberry Candy

Early this morning I planted these two day lilies at the mailbox. Their name is Strawberry Candy, but they sure look orangeish to me!

I needed something that didn't need much care, so these day lilies will work great.  All the ones I have in my present yard and my previous yard, have been tough and yet bloomed beautifully. 

Hope your Saturday is going great.  Mine is going to involve some hugs and kisses from a certain little fellow named Jake!

Farmhouse Gardening Magic Is Good For My Soul

Even when the temperature is 102 in my little corner of the world, going out into the yard before and after work is good for my soul.  I water a little here, pull a little grass or weeds there, listen to the birds sing, watch a humming bird dart around, dead head a blossom, and capture a little of the beauty with my camera.

My very favorite thing is when the timing is right and I can hear hymns from the country church that's about a mile down the road.  It chimes the time on the hour in the daytime.  At noon and at 6:00 PM there are beautiful old hymns.  This week I heard "A Mighty Bulwark is our God".  Absolutely love that one.  It brings back memories of singing it in church with my little Jacob beside me and when we got to the last line I would sing that to him... "the God of Jacob".  Of course now he's a grown up tall Jacob. 

Here are a few pictures of my soul soothing garden.

Farmhouse Gardening Magic

I love things like this in gardens!

Don't worry, these shoes were worn out, but not to the point of having a hole in the toe.  I made that hole with a knife for drainage!  The other shoe had a worn out place in the bottom that I was able to enlarge a little for drainage. The bunny rabbit ear?  A neighbor's dog thought we bought him a chew toy.  Dumb dog!

This is the "before" picture of the shoes.

My hubby threw the shoes away and I rescued them.  I love getting ideas from websites such as this one:  FLEA MARKET GARDENING.

My Zinnia garden is growing and just starting to bloom around the yellow chair planter.  I'll post pictures of it soon.

Glimpses of Home - A Little Bit of Fall

I've been enjoying Fall.  I love this time of year. Having a hubby who is retired is great.  He does so many things around the house. ...
