Joy In July

              In summer, the song sings itself.
                                                    ~William Carlos Williams

What's not to love about summer. Sun-filled, sultry, sensational
and well summery. Our gardens are beginning to share, flowers
are blooming and begging to be cut for a bouquet. 

Are you connected to your garden? Do you find pleasure being
outside. Nature nurtures. Watching the hummingbirds zipping
about the flowers, and butterflies gently landing on the blooms
will make you feel relaxed.

 Oh, the fragrance of a garden makes it a 
 place of delight, think of Lavender and 
 Roses and Herbs.
                             ~Diana Moore

Summertime is special. Flowers can help you find your joy.

I think grandson Ethan has found his joy!

Here's To The Red White And Blue

when the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the
Continental Congress.

An all-American holiday with parades, barbecues and picnics, flag-
waving all around and culminating with fireworks lighting up the 

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to
see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.

Thanks for stopping by. Step out tonight and see the fireworks !!!

Herb Harvest

Nothing is easier to grow than herbs. They provide wonderful
fragrance, look lovely and are edible too. They are fast growing,
needing sun and water, fertilizer at first planting then pinch and
clip as you need them. Like most annuals, periodic harvesting will 
keep them from going to seed. Space isn't an issue either. Any 
container will work as long as you provide for drainage. A small
spot in a landscaped bed near the kitchen will give you quick 
access to flavor all your dishes. Here's what I'm growing in my 
herb pots. 

Herbs are the friend of the physician
and the pride of cooks.

As Rosemary is to the spirit,
so Lavender is to the soul.

Nothing beats the taste of fresh herbs. 

Thanks for stopping by, Diana
