Three Stages of Blackberry Fruits – FOTD August 11

This picture of blackberries was also from our hike. Right now the wild blackberries are ripening everywhere near us. We’ve been able to partake from vines in our neighborhood a few times over the last 2 weeks. It’s so refreshing to eat perfectly ripened, sweet berries.

White Flower – FOTD August 10

This is either a Wild Carrot (Queen Anne’s Lace) or poisonous hemlock. I didn’t get a close enough look to gather which type it is. Both are noxious weeds to Washington State. It was found on our walk through Theler Wetlands in Belfair, WA. It’s quite pretty to look at against the dense, forest like greenery.

Pretty wet coneflowers from our garden yesterday. We had a dreary 2 days of rain and cloudy skies. Today we have wonderful sunshine. We love sunshine!

Teenager Sunflower & Middle Age Sunflower – FOTD – August 8

These were both planted at the same time but one is fully bloomed and the other have yet to open. I love this time of the year! I have a few more planted in our front yard that I planted really late. Hoping they’ll grow quick enough to bloom before the REALLY rainy and windy weather sets in. I also hope the deer will not get to them.

A Visit to Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm – FOTD

I’ve always dreamed of having a flower farm. We’re about 20 years past when we should’ve started one. It would’ve been crazy to start a farm with my husband’s past work schedule and little ones in tow. So the dream never came to fruition. We are very fortunate to have farms that we can visit in the area. We can just enjoy what our local farms produce and the little flowers I grow in our garden.

We absolutely enjoyed our visit to Lynch Creek Dahlia Farm. It’s a cute 3 acre farm full of color. There were so many varieties of Dahlia to choose from. You can pick your own flowers or you can purchase already-made bouquets. It was so fun to pick our own flowers. It was really hard to stop picking and clipping. I loved it! We shared what we brought home with our neighbors.

Here are some photos of the lovely Dahlias growing at the farm.

Mr. Bumble Bee Visits Our Garden – FOTD Lemon Sedum

Our daughter loves seeing bees, butterflies and birds flying around our garden. She insists on calling each bumble bee that she sees Mr. Bumble Bee. I was happy to catch this shot of Mr. Bumble Bee on a Lemon Sedum Flower.

How Doth the Little Busy Bee

Poet: Isaac Watts

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every opening flower!

How skilfully she builds her cell!
How neat she spreads the wax!
And labors hard to store it well
With the sweet food she makes.

In works of labor or of skill,
I would be busy too;
For Satan finds some mischief still
For idle hands to do.

In books, or work, or healthful play,
Let my first years be passed,
That I may give for every day
Some good account at last.
