Time in the Yard

It won't be long now, yum, home grown tomatoes.
These really will be "vine ripe". Don't you just love it in the stores when they say that and the very tomatoes they are talking about are still green? However we, or maybe I should say HE, since my husband insisted on putting so many plants in this small space that we had allotted, will know better next year.

When we moved up here from the Keys we brought several sea shells, coral rock, glass floats,net and all of the stuff you see to decorated homes by the seashore. We are a good two hours from the ocean but I have a small place in the yard that holds all of the nautical items.

This is just a few of the beautiful roses that are on a bush that our daughter bought when she was up here for a visit two summers ago. As you can see it is almost to the top of my clothes line post. It had about twenty roses on it at one time.

This is our lazy Manx, trying to catch a nap under the rocker on the front porch. When I called her name, she rolled over and looked at me as if to say,
This better be important" !
So not much in the way of art going on here, maybe when it gets a little hotter and I feel I must stay in the A.C. Hope you all are being creative and having fun.

from generation to generation...

In my last post you saw a picture of my daughter and myself on the beach. This is her daughter and me behind her, one of our trips to Illinois. In the next picture you will see my great grandmother, and this girls children which are my great grandchildren. If I count all of the mothers in between these two, there are five. My grandmother, my mother, myself, my daughter, my granddaughter, and her two children. I feel so BLESSED !

Praise ye the Lord, Praise O ye servants of the Lord, Praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and for evermore.
From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised.
The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,
who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven and in the earth!
He raised up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill:
That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children.
Praise ye the Lord.
