Simple Pleasures? You Can Grow That!

Four Words on the Fourth – Garden Bloggers You Can Grow That! Day – August 4th

A vase full of fresh flowers picked from the garden, some sweet, sun-warmed tomatoes and a glass of crisp, cold wine. Heaven…and you can grow that!

From my garden tonight comes a recipe for contentment. Pick a bouquet of Ami majus (not queen Ann’s lace) and put it into a vase or pitcher you love. Place some Sun Gold and Mountain Magic tomatoes on a plate. Finish by putting glasses of a well-chilled Viognier on the table and sit down to listen to the evening bird songs.

    Those moments are the rewards for us gardeners. The simple enjoyment of the fruits of our labor. There is nothing like growing your own!

    Funny – August calls for simplicity as we crawl, battle-scarred from the drought and extreme heat, into the next month of summer. It can be a time of sink or swim. And it’s good you reminded us all what it’s about. :)
