As the weather cools, little by little, we are grateful for the little things that are still feeding us from the garden. Our fall garden is coming along nicely, and we hope to see some kale popping up in our hoop house, so we can have an overwintering crop of it. Gardening is always a surprise and a gamble.
This is the time of year when we are often surprised by visitors of various shapes and sizes, who are beautiful in their own right. We are always amazed by the variety of God's creation!
Surely He enjoyed Himself when He created these~
The mints that we grew in pots have thrived in the wet soil around our outdoor faucet, and we love to snack on them when playing or working in the yard. They also make a lovely addition to salads and pesto!
Rebecca has taken it on herself to rescue the stuffed bears that Kaffeen the dog likes to chew on (note the missing eye on the right)~
My great-grandmother's old button box has been put to good use as we've been mending clothing and sewing on buttons for new gowns (photos forthcoming), and we're also working on sewing the patches of a future quilt that we found at our favorite thrift store.
Evangeline found a little time to model our latest fascinator, as well as trying on the bonnet that we're trying to finish up by tomorrow. Don't you just love her freckled face?
