We have been getting a bit of rain over the weekend
and it has certainly cooled things down rather pleasantly
still, the showers are falling in little spurts this morning
as the dove below can attest to
these doves love the rain and don't fly for cover when it falls
instead, they open their wings to make sure they get bathed in all the spots
it's so fun to watch them : )
imagine my pleasant delight to see more of my beautiful roses in the pot on my stair deck!
can anything be better than seeing such a pretty thing so early in the morn?!
the cool showers are giving the kitchen garden a sweet drink
and the plants are welcoming the water with open leaves : )
we shall soon have cauliflower to eat
and I love cauliflower to snack on raw
the cabbage leaves are starting to curl inside to make those delicious balls of green crunch
slightly steamed, it makes a great salad sliced up with tomatoes with dash of sea salt...
and a splash of oil and vinegar
I sowed some lettuce seeds that will soon be transplanted into the kitchen garden
more greens, please!
my chickens were let out of the coop and they are dodging the showers right now
of course, their favorite place to dodge under is right under the cottage
it becomes a congregation of small choruses of peeps, clucks and crows
we have enough bananas to keep us from becoming hungry if all else ever failed to grow : )
my husband hung a bunch this weekend under the cottage where it's easy to pick from...
any time we want a sweet snack
I looked outside the kitchen window and we have still more plantains growing
this past week, my husband and our farm hand cut down a whole bunch of ready plantains
they will be sold to the market in town
may I leave you with more rose?
these caught the rain drops just before I shot the last photo
it's a bit biased, but I think they are so lovely
the Lord is the best painter!
what a wonderful God we have!!
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
May your day or night be ever so lovely in God's grace.
