I took daughter #2 to the little beach and finished reading this book of poetry by Jewel.
Very heart-felt and sometimes cryptic and probably the only person who really knows what
some of the poetry really means, is her.
I love that she was willing to be “vulnerable” and share.
when I came back home; I spread a sheet on the ground and look what
“little fellow” came for a visit….
I pulled out some more books I picked up at my local library….
I found this book about the Amish….I find their way of life intriguing.
I have spent time in Amish country and it is beautiful and the people are such
hard workers at everything they do. Their gardens and crops are fabulous….
and speaking of gardens….look at my baby watermelon!

a baby bell pepper (in the center/right top of the picture).
sage…which I hope to dry the leaves for tea this winter.
the rosemary sprouted tiny blue flowers….
lastly, a dish I made to go with dinner….I used some lemon basil, which I did not show from the garden and yes
it is very hearty and doing well. I just combined lemon basil, olive oil, vinegar, salt and fresh
ground pepper with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
