Garden Bliss

On Monday, I went to her house to garden.

I must have picked green beans for 4 hours? And boy do my muscles ache now.
pickin' green beans

A little lady landed on my shoe.
The lady of my shoe.

Well I’ll be…a frog made an appearance, too (click for a hint).
Can you spot the frog?

I grabbed some squash.

Checked out the basil.

Had time to reflect.
reflecting on life. thinking about posts to write.

Came home to cheesy grins…

and this gorgeous fabric (the one with apples).

I rinsed green beans…

squash too.

Chopped, steamed, and enjoyed.

    I LOVE cooking, and eating, fresh fruits and vegetables whenever I can get my hands on them. I visit my local farmer's market whenever I get the chance. These pictures make me want to go this weekend.

    Take care,
