" 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

First Tomato of 2017

It's small, but atleast the tomato worms didn't get it !   I found 3 of them over the last 2 days, the worms, I mean, and I smashed them under my shoe !   I hope there will be no more.  I also picked a 3-inch cucumber.  I used to love them small and crisp like that, but my false teeth put an end to that.

And this pink hardy hibiscus blooms out at the edge of my backyard.......it is SO BEAUTIFUL, it doesn't even look real in this photo.

I bought another 2 Coneflower plants last night at work........ a lighter orange one, and a pink one.   They had finally marked them down $3 apiece AFTER I'd purchased 2 at full price of $6.72, so I paid $3.72.  Then, today when I went in, they had marked them to $3 even.  I don't plan to buy more unless they go to a buck or something.


  1. Hey, thats the first tomato I've seen! Good for you =). We love a mark-down like that too. We often stop at Lowe's to see what they are getting rid of for a dollar. oh...what a wonderful world...full of wonderful things, and often very inexpensive too. That helps! Have a good day my dear blogging friend.

  2. I like those cone flowers! I bought a pot last year (not cheap though) and I was hoping they'd spread. But they haven't. With all the warnings about tics.....I"m kind of afraid to go outside. Right now, I'll just enjoy the Rose of Sharon trees. Years ago, some kind lady gave my husband lots of plants from her garden and yard when she divided them. What a blessing.


Thanks for stopping by !
