It’s the last day of September and time for Friday’s Blessing list. It’s my list of happy things. I love looking for them. And I’m glad you’ve joined me!
1. Flowers from seed success ~
Last spring I went to Seedy Saturday at Confederation Centre Library in town. It’s an event where farmers and gardeners share various open pollinated and heirloom seeds. I picked up some lavatera, sunflower, various greens and pumpkin seeds to plant in our garden. I had wonderful success with my lavatera – best ever!
I’m in love with sunflowers 🙂
especially when they are backlit by a late afternoon golden hour in September.
2. Seedy Saturday wasn’t the only place we received free seeds. Sarah took advantage of a free seed offer, called Bring Back The Bees, sponsored by Honey Nut Cheerios and Vesey’s, a local seed company. They gave away 115 millions wildflower seeds across Canada! I planted the seeds in a little raised bed and they’ve been lovely!
The poppies finished a couple of weeks and I thought perhaps the blooming was over for the season. All that was left was alyssum and it was getting a little scraggly. I was debating pulling the whole thing up. But early one morning, as I was out on a photo stroll, I was surprised by these little beauties!
Saved by the asters!
3. Raindrops on
roses everything. Last week we had such changeable weather – dark and rainy one minute and the next thing sunlight breaking through. It made for interesting photo ops.
I love the look of raindrops glistening in the light. But I was hoping for something more. And I wasn’t disappointed!
Such a beauty!
4. The final batch of Nannie’s Mustard pickles finished for 2016!
As my mother used to say, ” A good job done!”.
5. and a happy husband!
I think the only thing that would make his smile bigger in September would be his woodpile! 😉
Well,I hope you enjoyed your visit this week.
And I hope you have some happy things to look forward to this weekend. I have three! Paper Lions’ big album launch is tonight – already over 900 tickets sold! I’m totally looking forward to a great evening. Tomorrow I have an all day retreat with the women of our church. And Sunday evening Roger and I are spending time with Oscar while Mummy and Daddy celebrate a birthday/anniversary. A fun weekend ahead!
Thanks so much for visiting!!
