Yay! It's the weekend! My school bag is parked in the entry way of our house and I am sitting, dressed in my pajamas, listening to the birds tweeting. Ahhh! Bliss!
Speaking of birds, look what my sweet mama sent me, along with a fancy new bird feeder that holds days and days of black sunflower seeds!
Oh, the seasons of tomatoes and apples. Isn't God brilliant? Look at those reds! Red must be the happiest color of all, don't you think? Well, and then there's yellow. And green. And orange.
Our Tasha Tudor's (giver of inspiration and imagination) birthday is this week! Yay for corgi dogs and sweet scenes of home!
I am in awe of Mama Pumpkin! I DO like growing little pumpkins VERY much! It's thrilling!
The sunbeams are on the sunflowers. August's corsage must be the sunflower.
My nasturtium leaves are gorgeous this year. They have been a bit shaded and enjoying more water, thanks to the spray system. Fairy rugs!
The birds are tweeting thanks as they swoop in to dine at all the feeders.
Our Australian houseguest told me that he is a bit envious of my basil. He proclaims it plump and delicious! I spread pesto (yes, I really made some!) on french bread, placed a few basil leaves on top of a tomato and covered that with cheese and guess what? Yes. DELICIOUS!
I'll dry some parsley, but I treat it like a flower and put bunches of it in mugs. It looks so green, so pretty.
Plum Cake left her shoes here last weekend. I really should have taken them off the line because the sun faded the blue parts, but I liked looking at them hanging there, reminding me of all things Plum Cake! She took a step, by the way! Yay!
Even though I sort of dreaded the end of August because it meant I'd be back at school full-force and NOT at home, the garden is lovely and ALL the flowers are bursting with joy. The students at school are adorable, sweet and shiny. I must spend some good time this weekend, pouring over their photos and memorizing all 120 names. Yikes! It isn't easy. I have a lot of thinking and planning to do and I already have some grading to do. I'll get used to it.
I hope your last week of August perks along nicely. Summer IS still in the air and it is meant to be loved.
