A Visit to Unity Village

Dear Friends,

Yesterday we took a little trip to visit the lovely rose and water garden at Unity Village. It was a warm 83 degrees, but there was a nice breeze that misted water from the fountains onto us, so it was very pleasant, indeed!

I can't remember where I first heard about Unity, but I have always been attracted to it. The village itself has beautiful architecture, and shows the vision of its founders for a peaceful haven for all who visit there.

Enjoy the photos!

Love,

"The Unity Prayer" 

The Light of God surrounds me 
The Love of God enfolds me 
The Power of God protects me 
The Wisdom of God guides and directs me 
 Wherever I go, God is 
And all is well 
And so it is Amen.

Happy Sunday

Dear Friends,

Our little garden is blooming so prettily for us on this sunny Sabbath Day, we couldn't help sharing it with you.

Hyrum loves this giant allium so much, that he picked it for me right after this was taken. :)


Chive blossoms may be small, but they're as pretty as anything, and so nice in salads and eggs!

In a wild spot in our backyard, I discovered this Solomon's Seal about to bloom~

And our first bloom from a Sarah Bernhardt peony just opened for us today; so lovely!
 

I drew this picture of a purple milkweed the other day, and the girls made a video of one of my songs to it.

I hope you enjoy it!

Love,

Marqueta

Spring Greens to Eat

Dear Friends,

I had a few requests on YouTube to start making wild food videos again, so the girls helped me make a theme song/scene for them, and added music to make them more fun.

Harvesting the things that grow all around us, uncared for, yet thriving, is a true thrill and fills my soul with gratitude. I love my gardens with home-grown tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and peas, but it's wonderful to know that I don't have to work hard to enjoy an abundance of food with an abundance of vitamins and minerals!

Enjoy!
