Today was a BEAUTIFUL day after the recent rains. Everything is growing like wildfire and there was grass to be mowed.
Looking at Betsy's blog today, I was inspired to set my round pavers into the ground at the back steps.
This section of flower garden is at the edge of my yard, against the woodline. I bought composted manure and top soil to add to this shade garden this year. I tilled in it roughly a few days ago, just trying to loosen the soil around the things that are already planted there.
Hubby provided another 12 Miracle Grow spikes for shrubs and trees, so now all of the Rose of Sharons, Crepe Myrtles and other things are fed. I treated the Hydrangea with the Bayer product that I bought for Black Spot disease, as it had started again. The rose bush was treated on May 10th.
Yesterday I got all of Jen's Contrary Wife quilt top cut out after having to replace the background fabric. And, today I received another project from Joide, with 2 more quilt tops to piece. These two are couch-size, so I am looking forward to doing them, but first comes the queen top for Jen.
" 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
