Hey friends, and welcome to the blog!
In the morning, I love to spend some time in my garden. This is one of my favorite parts of summer! It is so peaceful, and I think it is a wonderful place to think and pray.
We have lived here three years now, and each year my garden gets better. Perennials are starting to spread, and my yard is beginning to fill in.
It is such a blessing to see one of my dreams come true. After moving a lot and leaving half-done gardens, it has made my heart happy to see this one come to life.
I don’t know if we will be here forever, and that’s okay. There have been many times in life that my plans differed from God’s. But for now I’m so thankful for this season.
As a bonus, several of my children have started to enjoy gardening, too! I hope they remember these times for the rest of their lives.
I’ve been particularly drawn to the flowers in my yard, lately. They attract pollinators, as well as being beautiful.
I’ve had both failures and successes, but today I’m concentrating on the successes! (Right now Japanese Beetles are ravaging my bean plants. I’m not too happy about that, ha!)
Summer is usually the time I enjoy the garden without trying to plant anything new other than annuals and vegetables. In my experience, plants thrive much better if planted in spring or fall.
Thank you so much for visiting my garden with me today. I’ll talk to you soon!
