Welcome to my Garden

Published by under Gardening

Most things in my garden are looking really well. Still waiting for the beans, squashes, cucumbers, sunflowers, and basil to come up. Everything else is sprouting and growing beautifully. I love my garden. The little welcome sign my mom gave me this year (last year’s was broken), and Mercy’s little birdbath. The garden gate, and […]

Sleeping in and relaxing under the covers with husby. The fact that my coffee tasted better today, thanks to running vinegar through the coffee maker yesterday. Watching my husband take dominion of our yard all afternoon. The smell of freshly cut grass. Talking to my mom on the phone. Taking dominion of my home, as […]
