“Teach us to Number Our Days That We May Apply Our Hearts Unto Wisdom”

“Though we travel the world over to find beautiful, we must carry it within us or we find it not.” Emerson

We begin our day with a leisurely morning visit to the nursery……………….

Image“I had slept and dreamed that life was duty,

But waked to find that life was beauty….”

ImageFish pond

Image“Standing, with reluctant feet, where the brook and river meet…….”

‘Maidenhood’ Longfellow


Image
Decisions, decisions………….

Image“Time for a little something,” thought Pooh.

Sampling raw local honey.

ImageLittle legs resting.

“God has such a splendid way

Of tempting beauty out of clay,

And from the scattered dust that sleep

Summoned men who laugh and weep.”

Louise Ayres Garnett

ImageWe can’t wait to wear our gardening gloves!

ImageO, the possibilities!

“Here is my description of a truly happy land……….

Sons vigorous and tall as growing plants……..”

ImageIsabelle’s garden decor made from a broken tea cup.

ImageGreen bean tepee, this is after he trimmed the branches about 1/3 of the way down……hmmmm, what was he imagining?

“One of the best things in the world is to be a boy; it requires no experience but needs some practice to be a good one.”

Charles Dudley Warner

…………our day ends by drawing the plans and making pretty things for our gardens. We also plant garlic. Twelve new bulbs from one old one. It should be ready to harvest in September, or you can eat it green during the summer, for a milder taste.

  1. Oh, dear! Wish I was there! What a facsinating nursery…Love bean pole teepees! Im sure he was planning on living in it???

    • Maybe! We’ll hope the green beans are extra vigorous! Did you recognize the teacup? It was one of the set you had sent the girls. Isabelle, of course, saved it after it broke, for such a time as this, I guess!
