Garden Life, Yard Sale Finds & Family

Some more favorite things ~

My garden, as most of you all know, I just love. Especially finding veggies growing!

And pumpkin vines! Also Pea vines…actually any vines! I love how they curl and attach themselves.

Sunflowers and their sun worshipping…I love how the plant follows the sun…can’t wait for the flower to bloom and watch it migrate. A trio of pictures follows…morning sun, mid-day sun, and evening.



I was pulling weeds when I yanked one up and had a blast of Chamomile up the nose! Took a REAL look at it and exclaimed “that IS Chamomile!” What the?! I took the plant out back and put it in a container until I found my wildflower book. Sure enough ~ Wild Chamomile! I’m going to replant it near my rhubarb plants when I get home tonight…it’s being kept company in the small garden box at the moment.

The many faces of Hannah, my niece ~ we were at the Sparks Marina for lunch on Friday.

Finally…yard sales. They weren’t all that great this weekend, but I did pick up a bunch of books for a quarter each at the Sparks Methodist Rummage sale.
