Daisies on the front porch
My cottage garden
Strawberry yogurt popsicles ~ another idea from Faye at The Blessed Hearth!
Dried lavender ready for sachets
Lavender shortbread cookies
A riverside park was a lovely place for a picnic lunch
Enjoying the beautiful setting for a Farmer’s Market and an evening concert in the park ~ a day trip and time out for Bill and I
Back home at our own local Farmer’s Market there is much to enjoy. Aren’t these lovely rag rugs? We have a rag rug in our bedroom that Bill bought at an auction a number of years ago and I love it! Have any of you tried making one?
An abundance of market flowers
And I especially love all the bouquets for $5 ~ so pretty!
My cutting garden has been a little trial and error this year with some successes and quite a few failures but it does bring me joy to see some things finally blooming! Both Abbie and I planted calendula and bachelor’s buttons from seed and they are a couple of the successes. Oh, and the sweet peas too ~ a first for me!
Where I only have a small amount of blossoms on my bachelor’s buttons ~ Abbie’s have been flourishing in the little ladder garden Bill made for her. This is her first garden and it has done so well!
Such blessings we have in the simple things the Lord gives us. I hope you have had a lovely Sunday and may the week ahead be filled with joy and peace in Him!
