Praise !

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

The Hibiscus are blooming!

And they are quite beautiful, glory to God our maker !
This medium pink Hibiscus is growing out near the edge of my woods.
This one is my favorite, the only dark pink one that I have.
This one is my most prolific bloomer
This one is underneath and behind the mailbox, and I continually have to tie it back out of the way of our mail deliverer.  It will have to be moved this Fall.  Last year, it had a bit more pink to it than this year.

Rain, rain, glorious rain.......we've had lots of it !  The squash fell apart and curled up, but the cucumbers are producing fairly well.
Look at all that grass in there !   I told Hubby that I wasn't fooling with the vegetable garden, it was HIS responsibility, so.....Oh, well, he's enjoys it as is, so that's fine with me.

 I've made approximately 7 pints of sweet pickle slices, and we enjoy them with our supper.
The okra started really taking off, and now if we receive some dry heat, I'll be able to cook up a little mess for the hubby. (EDIT:  I actually was able to gather a little 'mess' just now !)

Sadly, the tomatoes are knobby little things, and some of the plants were ravaged by the biggest ol' tomato worms I've ever seen !   GROSS !
Peony.....I don't know what color !
And this is a Peony that Rose shared with me last month.  It looks like it is making itself at home, and I look forward to having my first blooming Peony next Spring !

Well, on the sewing front, I'm back to work on Jennifer's Contrary Wife top........after a short detour on another project !  I hope to be able to share pictures of that one as soon as I get word that it was received in the mail.

  1. Your hibiscus are doing well. I had a dinner plate one once but eventually the very cold winter season took it out.

    1. These are wonderful to raise. I once bought a HIbiscus at Walmart, and it died when Winter came. But my neighbor shared her Hardy Hibiscus, and I've been happy ever since ! I don't know if they'd make it through YOUR Winter, but they're wonderful here in Tennessee.

    1. Yep, I'm doing the boring part today (and yesterday).....3/4 inch solid green border, followed by 5 inch solid bubblegum pink border. Not much to photograph and not very exciting........EXCEPT for the fact that I am nearly done and can start ANOTHER project !
