Friday, It Is

Once again...
we are picking guavas

so are the birds

which means...
if we are to get any of them...
we need to pick them faster than those fine-feathered creatures of the skies

the cabbages planted a couple of months ago are coming along nicely

maybe it's me...
but, they sure do make a pretty picture...
especially in the kitchen

and really...
there is just something about seeing the tops of trees with their green leaves...

and peering through them to the blue sky

and coming back down from the tree tops...
lots of coconuts deck the palm trees with emerald jewels...
young, green coconuts

and these jewels carry delicious, sweet nectar...

that is just right on a warm, sunny day...
high in potassium, electrolytes, and very hydrating...
which are great combinations when working hard outdoors

I offered a wee bit to the neighbor dog, with the name of, Friday...
who stuck out her tongue with a "yeck"
she prefers "a piece of cheese, please"
she's feeding puppies these days and I always oblige her with a cheese treat

after the nectar, comes the "pudding"...
or as most people call it, "jelly"
which lines the inside nut shell of the coconut

soft and sweet; easy to scoop up with a spoon

it tastes just like...
coconut; a little sweet and mildly nutty

coconut water nuts, we call them

and still, the zinnias near the garden keep coming
bloom on! zinnia blossoms...

May your day or night bloom in the grace of the Lord.


  1. It seems to me that everything on Pilgrim's Farm makes a pretty picture. Your photos are always beautiful, as are your posts. Yours is the only blog I go back to the very beginning and go through post by post. It's like a comforting movie that leaves me feeling nothing but good . . . and very inspired.

    Thank you so much for sharing your world with us and bringing a ray of sunshine into mine - usually when I'm stuck in my office behind my desk! :-)

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth, for your encouragement. It's nice to know my blog brightens your day. Your visits and comments brighten mine : )

  2. Green coconuts are better than ripe ones, by far! Have a good weekend!

    1. Except when I want coconut milk : ) You have a great weekend, too, Mark! I'll be stopping by your blog.

  3. I say an Amen to what Elizabeth posted! Thank you for taking the time to share your corner of God's creation with us!!! You Godly character shines through all you do and share! Thank you!

    1. You're welcome, Unknown. Thanks for your visits and comments!

  4. What a delightfully refreshing blog! Even though I love snow this was like a breath of fresh air.

  5. I'd have to say that all your photos are jewels. :)
