My neighbor and friend Reve has a lovely little pear tree. I think the fruit is like a jewel. They are tiny and they taste delicious. Pears are my favorite.
She shared from more of her garden bounty. We'll eat the squash tonight.
Because I know plants do good things for the house air, I am going to indulge in more house plants (I haven't had any for ages). This is a tropical plant. Don't you love the colors?
And OH! Thank you, Lord! It's mum time! Small pots are very reasonable at the grocery store, so I'm putting some in where the summer flowers have faded. Pansies, too.
I'm so thankful for this little "pack-n-play" that we bought when our first granddaughter came into our world. I still love the blue gingham and the cradle hood. Miss Plum Cake still sleeps in it when she naps here. She snuggles right down even though it's on the small side. James will sleep in it, too. He is so attached to his gentle mommy right now. It's beautiful to see. The way they smile at each other is pure love.
My mom's shawl is coming along. I knit more when Jenny's girls are here on Thursdays. I think it's because I sit in the family room with them and I reach for my knitting. Didn't old- time nannies knit while they watched their charges? Yay!
Here's the cute book in which I found the cat pattern. I have a feeling we'd all really like Lucinda Guy!
I do like my out-of-date family room. I mean to take the old wallpaper borders off and freshen up the white paint. I wonder if I'll actually do that. Hmmmm.
So our August is almost ready to bid us farewell. She's been so kind to us here in Colorado. We've had cool evenings and soft rains. September is my favorite month (my birthday! Ha!) and I am hoping she is gentle as well. I so appreciate Susan Branch. She is a VERY NICE artist and blogger. She is so humble and tries very hard to connect with her readers. She's so inspirational. Sharon Lovejoy is also a very personal author. She is a busy writer, too. Her garden wisdom is epic and her heart for others shines through. I love people who tend to those they've found favor with. Don't you?
I'm glad my Gladys Taber collection still sits on the shelf. Her cheerfulness is soothing. She loved people, too. She was goodness personified.
My other neighbor had this thistle sack hanging from the spruce trees and the finches are crazy about it! Now I have one, too! They cling to the net with their toes. It's adorable!
Thank you, God. For zinnias.
All of the annuals are full and prosperous just now.
Some buggy thing is eating my basil, but it's still going strong. Can you see the lavender in the back?
My coughing muscle has been bothering me (this virus lasts forever and quite a few of us have it) so I am going to lay low AGAIN today. I've run out of interesting Netflix to watch. Any suggestions?
I hear lawn mowers chugging along and I smell decongesting smells coming from the oil diffuser.
I think it's a good day to make some beautiful chocolate chip cookies. I'll share.
Good day to you. May God be with you.
