Hot Days of July

Pretty hot indeed. But the garden doesn’t mind it.  I started a “monsoon garden” last week and everything is coming up nice and robust.  I had to hang a shade cloth over it though, so the little sprouts wouldn’t get burned.  It’s been 109 degrees here in Tucson.. ..I know, yuk! I have the screen over the seedlings because Cats you know. The middle photo is my herb garden.  The basil loves the heat.  And then a shot of my shade cloth because I’m  so proud I got it to hang so high and tight.   These days are so…

Birthday Month

The smell of lilacs, fresh cut grass, giant lollipops and laughter in the air are whispers of long ago.  Those are happy memories of my birthday. 

A New Thing

“He is doing a new thing”  (in me) That is my inspiration for this season.  Isaiah 43:19. The other day a friend mentioned on Facebook that she was selling her house and had to put away all her art supplies for a while.  I shutter at the thought.  But it got me thinking about how we get used to having many things at our fingertips but then there is a shift and we have limited resources. We can get frustrated, stomp our feet, curse the air, and ask ‘why me, ‘why now?’.   But eventually the disrupt  forces us to think…

New Attitude!

This year has started off very different from the last 4 years. We are now 3 months into the year.  This is about the time we first measure how the year is going so far.   I’m not sure you will believe me or that I will bore you with my faith beliefs but here goes. Goal #1. To be bold in my faith! In the spring of 2017 I had such a difficult season working in my own strength. (My own strength? you ask,)  ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”  Philippians, 4:13. Yes, in my…

In the Midst of Monsoons

Well, we are finally having gorgeous down pours on a daily basis here in Tucson.  I’m loving it.  But man, did we suffer through some hell -type temps to get to this point. My tomatoes are loving the rain too.  However, the cantaloupe is a wash.  Not one fruit.  And I have decided it’s not the heat that affected them.  Melons love heat!  I believe it’s the lack of bees for pollination.  The past three years I have noticed less and less bees.  And I am sad about that.  So I got to thinking about raising bees in my back…
