I'm daydreaming...... The grass is freshly mowed, and everything's weeded- neat as a pin and in full bloom. The fragrance of lilacs, and stargazer lilies is in thee air. Butterflies are overindulging in zinnias and bumble bees are visiting every rose of sharon blossom.
Soon; I keep telling myself. Soon, you can till the soil and start planting! And opening my mailbox today, got me even more excited. Inside, was a package came from RH Shumways. I ordered new seed that I'm really excited about. Job's Tears, and Kiss Me Over The Garden Gate. I also purchased two packs of Love Lies Bleeding. I used to grow it and absolutely LOVE it. Usually the seed is saved for the next year, but I couldn't find it. I don't know what happened to it, and had to re-order. I'm so thankful that I was able to find it! ~ I can't help but think of the women of days gone by. Gardening was a way of life for them all. A garden was food and what they canned got them through a winter. Flowers were many women's finery! And seed was precious and priceless! They took such care of their seed. Even protected it!
I want to grow a biblical garden. I googled it and came up with a few things but the bible is the true key to finding these plants. I'm hoping yall will help. If you can think of plants of the bible... please comment and share the ones you know. I think it would be a lot of fun to set aside a special area .... it'll be like a tiny Garden of Eden.
This is probably my favorite place to be. This is my prayer closet.
"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." Matthew 6:6
This is where I get away from it all. To my back, is a row of Red Tip Photinia. They've grown so much in the last year, and they are beginning to hide me. I'm trying to plant alot of shrubbery so you can't see my garden from our country road. I love to bring my morning coffee and bible out here, and I'm longing for warm mornings where I can do so. I left this table outdoors almost all summer last year and it weathered badly. It's now inside a shed, and will only be brought out on sunny days, when the roses have guests. So... I'm now on the lookout for a small, round, metal table, with a couple of chairs. Something that can withstand the elements for a while. Also I'll be putting up more lights. I love twinkle lights in my garden, and look forward to sitting among the moonflowers and hummingbird moths by twinkle lights.
From my lessons this morning I pray all my seed is sown in fertile soil.
And soon....I hope flowers will be blooming again!

Tomorrow I'll be out all day. I have errands in a nearby town; but while I'm there, Hobby Lobby is on my to- do list! (I know you feel sorry for me. lol) I have two more birds already sewn and also want to make an angel this week as well. Unfortunately, I ran out of polyfil. A girl needs her polyfil! I've had a goal of getting things made up to go in my Etsy shoppe for so long. It's long overdue. So, my Hobby Lobby list includes the items I need to finish up a few old projects as well as more birds on springs! So please be watching for an open sign on my little shoppe. I'll also be listing a few vintage finds. Happily, I'll also beable to stop off at my favorite thrifts tomorrow. Who knows what's waiting?
If you can think of plants named in the bible, please drop a comment and help me add to my list.
I love all your comments and your friendships mean so very much to me.
