I’ve made you traipse around other flower spots with me for the past couple of weeks, so today, we’re stepping out my back door. We’ve been in a cool, dry spell, and things have slowed down considerably. I’d like to say there’s not much to do out there, but that’s rarely true. So we’ll overlook … Continue reading SIX ON SATURDAY Back to My Garden in Late October

Six on Saturday: 2022 Fall Wildflowers
Just look at all the wildflowers in this field! Can’t see them? You’re just not looking closely enough. Believe me. They’re in there. But first, let me say this post is sort of incomplete.

SIX ON SATURDAY: It’s a Jungle Out There!
Take a walk with me today. As I show you my very wet, subtropical garden, you’ll notice the overgrown shrubs and plants that have been thriving this summer.

Of course, they’ll die back after the first frost, but for now, I love the layered … Continue reading SIX ON SATURDAY: It’s a Jungle Out There!
She Loved Much
Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven--for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little." And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." -Luke 7: 47-48 One of my long-time friends was laid to rest last week. It's still hard to believe she's gone because her death … Continue reading She Loved Much
