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!

This quote is so fitting for me as I am figuring out what to do next after being a stay at home mom for so long. Working on it. My husband purchased “Now, Discover Your Strengths” by Marcus Buckingham & Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D. It is my next read.

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.

Good Morning! – FOTD – August 7

2020 - Good Morning Sunflower Quote

Here’s a pretty sunflower for those of us who need an extra pick me upper.

This is a picture I’ve taken years ago. It’s one of my favorites and it was taken from a park nearby. I’d love to grow these type of mammoth sunflowers in my garden someday.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. ~ Maya Angelou

This photo of Mount Rainier was taking on a camping trip on Anderson Island, WA. Such a beautiful and relaxing place to be. We were fortunate to spend some quality time with wonderful friends.

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.
