I love this moment when the roses start to peek. I am really getting a feel for this garden and have been working, working hard all week. I have irises yet to rearrange, but things are looking good. I know my labors won't be evident for at least a year. What I see this year is a result of the first two year of gardening on this land. Isn't that such a spiritual application? What we sow now, we will reap later. I have much patience for this sowing and harvesting when it comes to my garden. I wish it would carry over into other areas of my life. God and I have been working on that lately...
So come take a peek and look around at some of my blossoms.
We have also been under construction this week!!! We are having a block wall built, that looks like rough stone on one side. (Cultured stone) This week Pasha has been digging, and digging, one young man digging for two days. Bless Him! We then had the concrete poured for the foundation. And sometime next week there will be a wall. Today they actually delivered half of the blocks...but not all from the same dye lot as we requested...several times, to the contractor, to the store, and now they are dealing with the manufacturer...as in all things construction, human error tends to abound. We are in no big hurry, just excited to finally see our little patch of earth get a few boundaries. Don't worry we are not fencing our back view. We just have some awfully close neighbors on these little city lots. As some of you have commented though, things look and feel much more expansive because of our back view.
Blocks delivered...Sorry I have been missing you all a bit in blog land this week. Next week will be busy too. Can you believe I have 1 wedding, 2 bridal showers, and a baby shower this weekend, never mind all the graduations. Amazing!
Sounds like a movie, A Wedding, 3 Showers, and a Graduation…sappy joke I know :] But that's how my silly mind works....................................................
