Spring has Sprung

Yay! Progress made on the garden project list-

thanks to some really nice weather:)

But more on that later-

just some miscellaneous photos today.

Oh! First I need to say that we have now added rabbits to our list of seen wildlife at our place.

Yep, when I was using our riding mower to mow down all the tall grass, weeds,

caneberries, etc, etc in the area formerly known as the main garden--

out hopped a baby bunny!! Unfortunately I didn't get to see the little one;

fortunately my best friend did!

(it also proved my point that our assorted tree limbs, branches, grass, weeds, berries,

etc, etc is now a wildlife habitat!)

But back to pics...


(aka leaf catcher in autumn; petal catcher in spring)

a bee going about their business:)

(wildflower/perennial garden)

baby strawberry!

(I haven't planted the Alpine strawberries yet but they have babies too)

one of many columbine--

every year I buy more and now I collect their seeds to plant.

My dream world would have hundreds of them and California poppies!

Love them both!

Can't remember the names of these right now-

but they are SO pretty!

(upper pond)


mostly marionberries

taking over the main garden

(but not as much since I mowed back there)

Also got another load of mulch down in the Japanese style garden-

looks SO much nicer now!

Planted two new columbines--

beautiful double white 'woodside gold',

basil, cilantro and three new tomatoes

('sungold', 'early girl' and a cherry tomato variety)--

the tomatoes were only $1 each for a gallon size

(made my day--well that and a hundred other things!)

Time for bed...

The WORD on Wednesday

I sought the LORD, and He heard me,

and delivered me from all my fears...

This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him,

and saved him out of all his troubles.

The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;

and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Many are the afflictions of the righteous:

but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
Psalm 34:4,6,18-19 KJV


In the last few weeks I have been witness to God's intervention in my life and the lives of several family members. Literally, I have seen Him save one of my loved ones from certain death when we were told that they would be dead by that night.

I feel humbled that God Almighty would answer prayer in such a miraculous way that even the doctors were calling it a miracle! And I give only Him thanks for giving hope where there was none, for shedding light where there was darkness and for His abiding love to my family.

Thank you Lord!
