Thinking about Fall.......

All it takes for me to start thinking about Fall, is a few cloudy, slightly cooler days.

I switched over to my Fall coffee mug and made hamburger vegetable soup this weekend.

I bought my first Fall candle of the year.  (only $5 at Dollar General)

I'm doing more quilting because for me that's a cooler weather activity.
Are you looking forward to Fall?

Strawberry Candy

Early this morning I planted these two day lilies at the mailbox. Their name is Strawberry Candy, but they sure look orangeish to me!

I needed something that didn't need much care, so these day lilies will work great.  All the ones I have in my present yard and my previous yard, have been tough and yet bloomed beautifully. 

Hope your Saturday is going great.  Mine is going to involve some hugs and kisses from a certain little fellow named Jake!

Farmhouse Gardening Magic Is Good For My Soul

Even when the temperature is 102 in my little corner of the world, going out into the yard before and after work is good for my soul.  I water a little here, pull a little grass or weeds there, listen to the birds sing, watch a humming bird dart around, dead head a blossom, and capture a little of the beauty with my camera.

My very favorite thing is when the timing is right and I can hear hymns from the country church that's about a mile down the road.  It chimes the time on the hour in the daytime.  At noon and at 6:00 PM there are beautiful old hymns.  This week I heard "A Mighty Bulwark is our God".  Absolutely love that one.  It brings back memories of singing it in church with my little Jacob beside me and when we got to the last line I would sing that to him... "the God of Jacob".  Of course now he's a grown up tall Jacob. 

Here are a few pictures of my soul soothing garden.
