And it is supposed to continue throughout the week, which is good timing because I have another commission to work on for Jodie Ann. It will be a quilt top using the pattern, "Contrary Wife/Ornery Husband.
It takes rain to keep me from doodling around in the flower gardens all day !
A quick tour this morning produced a few pictures.
This Lily is one that was here when I bought the place, but I think that this is only the second year that it has bloomed although this is my fifth summer here.
The color of the orange is SO GORGEOUS, just a bit different from Tiger Lillies.
Hubby's garden plants are growing well with the exception of the little okra seedlings which don't seem to have changed much this week.
The squash is blooming this morning, and has little baby squash all over the place....of course, we usually lose the first few to rot, and then they start to produce good, big specimens.
The cucumbers put out little 3/4 inch baby cukes, and then began to bloom. He has put out SO MANY that I hope I'm able to can a few jars of the sweet pickles using the recipe that I tried two years ago. They were a refrigerator pickle recipe that didn't have to be pressurized.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
