|I saw many rainbows this year|
|The peony season is over, but they were beautiful|

It is still rainy. In fact, it rained today. I removed the lettuce which looked fresh and healthy, but had gone bitter with the heat. I hoed away the many little weeds which were everywhere in my vegetable/cutting garden. Hot sweaty work!
I try not to feel overwhelmed, but there is a lot of weeding to do- it is like July here. But then I look at how my children have helped and how my husband made some raised beds for the big vegetable garden. And I think of the encouragement I received to rebuild my gardens…. and I just feel thankful. It makes the overwhelmed feelings fade( or in this heat, melt) away.
I’ve seen gorgeous rainbows, and experienced my garden’s aromas and beauty, I’ve harvested some lettuce salads, and added to my arsenal of working tools with a
Troybilt Mantis* tiller. It has been a good year… quite different, but blessed.
I appreciate my online garden friends… and thank each one for their encouragement and support that comes from their interest. It helps to give me meaning to my days. Writing is for the reading, and so many things in our lives are like that. I am thankful.
* I’m not a very good person to remember brand names…oops.
