Heirloom Gardener Magazine



 Dear Friends,

Do you subscribe to the Heirloom Gardener Magazine? If so, you will see an article written by little ol' me! I wrote it over one year ago, so it has been quite the wait to see if finally in print!


I submitted two articles, one on yarrow, and one on shiso, two herbs that I grow in my own garden and love. The shiso article is the one featured in the Winter 2016 issue, which I just received in the mail today.





If you have never read "Heirloom Gardener," I would highly recommend it for anyone learning how to garden, and also for those who have gardened for a while, but are looking for new ideas. There are also helpful herbal home remedies and crafts. Here is a link to the website where you can subscribe to this magazine.

Till next time,

Marqueta

"Some Good to Do"


Dear Friends,

Here is a poem from an Ideals Magazine that I thought went along with these photos from a recent nature outing~

"Some Good to Do"
by Georgia B. Adams


If there's some good that I can do 
To ease another's way,



If I can cause the sun to shine
Or moonbeams softly play,


If I can help to make a dream~
A lifelong dream come true,


My purpose for existing will
Be most rewarding, too.

If just a simple word of cheer
I might pass on to you,


Or help to ease a lonely hour
Of those whose friends are few,


Then I am rich for I have gained
A satisfaction sweet


In working out God's will for me
With all of those I meet.


I'd draw them into common bond
And for them daily pray;


I want to be God's instrument
To ease another's way.



Love,

Marqueta

Enjoying Autumn

Dear Friends,

Autumn time has truly arrived again, bringing the last of the flowers and beautiful blue skies. The colors are turning on the trees, and every breeze brings down a shower of leaves.



Time to spend as much time outside as possible, soaking up the last of the warm sunshine, before Jack Frost comes to pay a call!


These pictures were taken by Tasha at a nearby nature park~ She has an eye for photography!









May you be blessed with a full larder and happy heart this time of year, dear friends.

Love,

Marqueta
