Morning garden love

Every morning we get up very early, make the coffee and go to the garden for sitting quietly , reading a book and digging out some weeds. As we sit there we never know who may come by to visit. Butterflies, hummingbirds, sparrows, hawks, rabbits, squirrels, lizards and even a couple snakes.

We love watching the hawks and there have been a lot of them lately. They hunt the fields. They fly right over the top of us crying their hawk cry. Sometimes they just sit and wait and watch. I have always loved hawks.

This is one of our morning glory plants. I adore these flowers the beautiful purple and the green heart shaped leaves are just beautiful. The hummingbirds like them too.

This is the first year I grew eggplants. Wow! They are amazing plants. These are called finger eggplants. They are small , a beautiful dark purple color. The plants are like trees. Very strong trunks. They have done very well here in Arizona. So we will be planting them again. Also the squirrels don’t like them.

I am so Grateful for our little container garden. I used to have raised beds but because of the gophers, squirrels and grass I had to go a different way. This way is also much easier on my back and knees. Which when you are my age you have to start considering. I love and am grateful for all our beautiful flowers. All the lovely colors and surprises of colors. It’s amazing!

Thanks for stopping in!

Wishing you a beautiful day full of wisdom, insight and much love!

November miracle

It’s November 22nd and gez what a year it has been. We are all trying to find a little hope and peace in the middle of so much suffering. I have been growing a container garden for a couple years now. It’s better for my back and knees at this age. We have had a few frosts this year. The days have been unseasonably warm and these flowers I planted have been thinking about blooming for awhile. Today when I went out at noon to look around this little flower had opened up. How sweet is that?

This sweet little flower is in the same container as the parsley I planted. A few other flowers are thinking of opening up too. Parsley does well in cold weather and frosts but I am so surprised with these flowers. It makes my heart sing with joy! ❤

That’s all ! I wanted to share this with you! You never know what little miracle will come to show you a little joy in life. To remind you it’s all okay even when everything is so uncertain. To be honest uncertainty is part of everyday life.

Be safe, kind and keep peace in your heart!

Love ❤
