My Gardens

St. Fiacre guards
Garden beauty his domain
Peace his legacy.

Garden is Shalom
Holiness made incarnate
Labors own reward.

It has been more than two weeks since I've paused to make a post. The gardens - vegetable, fruit and flower - have consumed my energy. July and August are the most challenging months in the garden because of the heat. Even so, my pantry, freezer and spirit are filled with garden bounty. Next week: apples and planting fall greens if the weather cooperates. For more information about St. Fiacre, visit  Dave's Garden.

Hickory Creek Cove

Mist rises slowly
Over water smooth as glass.
Morning paddlers dream

Mom and Pop tag team
Back and forth with tasty treats,
Bluebirds feed their young.
