Foods for body and soul...........

Here's a bag of DH's very first REAL home-grown local tomatoes given to him by a friend.........he is eating tomatoes twice a day or more and just can't get his fill after a long winter and spring without them! And we are SO fortunate to have good neighbors with a beautiful garden who have given us beautiful produce........OMG, the silver queen corn is so delicious!
I am thankful for friends and neighbors who share with us!
Mary Jane, look this little bird up in your bird book for me, please.......it hit the storm door and sat here for awhile the other day. Thankfully he wasn't killed, but he let DH pick him up and he took flight into the tall pines at the porch before the outdoor cats found him! I'm sure he had a bad headache, because I heard him when he "thunked" into the glass door!
On our morning walk this weekend (already hot/humid at 7 a.m....ugh!) we saw these huge morning glories! I wished we had something with us to lay beside them to show the width...........we both commented we'd never seen any so large...........if that's what they are! The foliage looks the same as normal-sized morning glories; and can you see the "star" shape made with the five creases in each flower? It's more visible on the left one.........another one of God's little daily miracles that most folks sadly don't even look down to notice. I love the little daily miracles in nature here in the country. I wish busy people could/would slow down enough to smell the roses and "see" the ants building their condominiums; or watch my wren starting to poke pine straw into the pottery Williamsburg bird house........more on her later!

Jeff is fighting daylight

But, hey stopped in to say I'm back from vaca- been back since the 7th. Was a NICE quick getaway to the lake. Didn't take the camera along. Refused ALL notions of work. Just PLAY.

Glad you stopped in to visit the dollE. Yes, Alma's challenge is you MUST use on eof the techniques from her zine... I of course loved the embroidery patterns she sent along.

I think I might stay on the path of the rag doll just a wee bit longer. :)
