More flowers and Weeds

The sun is coming out big and bright this morning - the beginnings of the dog days of summer are approaching. With camera in one hand, and a cup of coffee in the other, I decided to share some of these beauties with you, dear reader. Most of my veggie garden is finished for the year - quite a disappoint-
ment for us this year due to the
dry days. We have recently been getting some of the wet stuff, I keep reminding myself not to complain about it being too little too late. The hard freeze we had over Easter destroyed too many of the blueberry blooms as well as the blackberries. We are thankful to have any for our enjoyment. The ones still on the vine and bush we are leaving for the birds to feast on. Soon, we will turn the ground over and start our fall garden of greens.

During our trip this past weekend to Lancaster County, everything looked so lush, green and like a majestic jigsaw puzzle. Not that many miles away at Gettysburg, we noticed brown, dead grass - obviously not enough rain there either. While we were in Pennsy, there were a few nights of torrential rain with localized flash floods. The days were clear, low humidity and I am certain that the farmers in the area were praising God for the rain.

Psalms 92 1 & 2 : Good to give thanks to Jehovah, And to sing praises to Thy name, O Most High, 2 To declare in the morning Thy kindness, And Thy faithfulness in the nights
