Sunday Morning Reflections



We looked in wonder and amazement as the seeds we sowed so casually in late May began to grow.......


Every morning, we went to our garden to check on the progress of fruits and vegetables; a blossom turned into a squash, another into a baby watermelon.....


Our little garden became such a joyful experience for both of us and enriched our summer immeasurably.

  1. It's the best feeling in the world!

    Great photos!


    I had a herb and vege garden once when I lived in Maine. The deer had eaten most of it.

  3. So glad I dropped by today Inger-these are beautiful. Our flowers have all died now and the trees are losing their leaves so this was a treat.

  5. Yay! Look who's back! And, now I'm back too, and just spent some time catching up on your new postings. Looks like you and Samson had a wonderful Summer. I'm glad that you have your new computer, so that now you can post all of your lovely photos. I do so enjoy seeing them. Your countryside is so different from mine, and very compelling. Tell Samson it isn't cows he needs to be afraid of, but that I'm very glad that he is such a smart dog to stay out of trouble. And, tell Angel that I hope that she had a very Happy, Happy Birthday. What a wonderful dog she is.

  6. Oh, look at your beautiful garden!! Are you getting produce even now? We've got our first frost warning for tomorrow night, so any last tomatoes I was hoping would ripen on the vine better hurry up... They've only got about 24 hours left .. lol
    Very nice pics, Inger!

  7. NO, this was our summer garden, we had the first frost on 10/7, but it has been hot ever since, so most of the garden died. I still get corn, mint, green onions. Louise, I'm so glad you are back too. Our landscapes are so different and that makes it so much fun to check in.

  9. I bet that watermelon will taste good. I like you new profile picture. I just cut off the dry zinnia heads for next year. Gardening is such fun.

  10. A veggie garden will do the trick! Nothing like bringing in the crop in the fall! Hey, a just picking herbs when you need them, satisfies me beyond belief.

  11. Nothing like reaping the benefits of your own labors!

  12. Hello Inger!! I'm so glad that you're back!! I've loved seeing what you got from your garden, and what you'll be enjoying when this years harvest is a memory! I didn't have one this year, maybe next year...Yeah, next year! :-)

    Its been good to get your comments too! We've had a busy summer with the dogs. I can't remember if you know if you know or not, (I think you do) but we said good-bye to Hamlet, Rudi, and Reggie who was a newcomer in June. We added the Scottie in late June too. I decided that it was time for a puppy, and I knew I didn't want a golden--While I love Goldens of course, my heart will always belong to the seniors, and I really wanted to 'change it up.' I met the person I got 'Todd' from on the blogs--It's a small world!

    Our newest girl is Jasmine--She came about 2 weeks ago and is 12. She's a bit bossy and the fight this morning was just because our girl Sheba wants to be the boss...All is well, the day ended on a good note, and I hope yours did too!! Take care, and it really is good to have you back!!!! :-))

  13. I envy you your watermelon. We don't get enough heat for melons to grow well.

  14. I have never grown watermelons, but this fall we harvested two baskets of gourds to decorate with. :) Your melon looks SO delicious!

  16. As fall winds down (we're expecting snow tomorrow or Wednesday) it's nice to look back on spring and early summer. Gives a promise of good things to come to those who wait!

  18. Our garden burnt up in the horrible heat we had this summer. Hope we don't experience that again for a long time. Glad yours did so well.
