Beauty beyond the Green Garden Gate! 
 This is one of the prettiest plants I’ve ever seen in my garden.  It’s from an old Hubbard Squash seed that I planted earlier this spring.  I can’t believe it’s just now blossoming in hopes of producing an edible delight. 

Per my past posting, I’m hoping to use this pic in some creative form.  Maybe I'll set it into a fairytale setting or sketch it or who knows what ~ all I know is that it’s my newfound inspiration and therefore I’m happy.

I had to borrow this pic from the internet.  It really got me to thinking – what is it that other people see in me that I don’t? 

Ever since I was young it seemed that people believe there is more to me than what I see.  Through the years I’ve heard that I’m so talented and still I don’t see it.  I’ve been told I should be writing children’s books, cook books, creating artistically and still I can’t seem to find the motivation.

Today I pulled out some art supplies and shortly after I tucked them away in frustration.  What happened to my so called talent?   

Please don’t misunderstand this as a pity party because I appreciate that I’m blessed beyond belief. I honestly just wish I could see what others see in me - yet it eludes me.

For those few of you who may have been checking my page; I’m back. The saying is that time flies when you’re having fun, well … it hasn’t all been fun but time did fly by since I last posted.

A little over a month ago I dislocated some ankle bones and some of the bones on the top and side of my foot. And although the x-rays showed no breaks, I severely sprained my foot at the same time. Oh, and I have heel spurs forming. Wasn't that nice of them to tell me?!

After laying around after ice bath soaks for the foot and ankle, elevation and the use of an air cast, I am finally on the mend.  Yesterday was my first cast free day after overdoing what I thought was healed.  Over use put me back at square one for a bit.

In the mean-time the flowers boomed while the weeds flourished.  The vegetable garden seems to be slow because of the wet, cool weather. So be it!   

We outsmarted the deer this year 
by fencing in all the flower beds.
