Garden Pictures

Here are a few pictures  from my garden I wanted to share with you.  I marvel at how each flower so beautifully reflects the creative genius  who made them and wakes them up every spring.

"Who is like unto thee, O LORD, amongst the gods?
 Who is like thee, glorious in holiness,
 fearful in praises doing wonders?"

Exodus 15:11

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous:
but the LORD delivereth him out of them all."

 Psam 34:19

"For with thee is the fountain of life:
in thy light shall we see light."

Psalm 36:9

"The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good."

 Proverbs 15:3

"Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us:
according as we hope in thee."
Psalm 33:22

"Let all the earth fear the LORD:
let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him." 
Psalm 33:8

Some Pictures From The Past

This is my automatic dishwasher.  The "automatic" part is a little tricky.

Add "Be still, and know that I am God:
I will be exalted among the heathen,
I will be exalted in the earth.
The LORD of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge." Selah. Psallm 46:10,11

The Kitchen Project Is Finished

The kitchen is up and in use.

We used vintage lighting.

The sink is a reproduction cast iron.  I love, love, love my sink!

The little vintage lamp over the sink is just charming.  We turn it on in the evening after dinner to softly illuminate the whole kitchen.

It's me!

It's been several years since we had chicks around here.  Our hens are beginning their fourth laying cycle and are not performing well at all.  Out of 13 ladies, 6 eggs are being produced.  Not so good, girls.  Maybe I shouldn't tell them that their replacements have arrived.

This is always an exciting day.  

Fifteen adorables arrived safely!  

They are now two-weeks old.  This one is a Columbian Wyandotte.  She is so tame that she has picked Sawyer out as her (hopefully a her) special person.  As you can see, she is wearing the grass collar he put on her.

He is an honest-to-goodness chick attracter.

This cutey is a Silver Laced Wyandotte. I'm wondering a bit about this one; possibly a rooster?   We took them outside in two buckets so they could get some fresh air.  

Here is another of my chicks.  Daniel is washing dishes for Grandmama.
You just can start too soon!

Sneak Peaks on the Kitchen

I love sharing pictures of my garden.  Many of the plants were left by the Wilsons.  Here are a few.

A wild garden phlox
Angel Wings: Rosa Chinensis
Grown from seed.

Intoxicatingly fragrant Mock Orange

This week I am moving into the new kitchen.  Yay!  It's been fun deciding how to organize things, but I suspect I will have to do a little squeezing as this kitchen is a bit smaller.

We found this vintage light on E-Bay.  Dave cleaned it all up and re-wired it.

I love white kitchens.  I love old things.  


This is my third son, Collin Lane.  He is a deary.  This was taken on Mother's Day.
