gnome homes and star moss and august
Half way through this summer season. Our world so full of color, we can feel ourselves heading towards the golden time. I am embracing it. I am happy to be here right in the middle of summer.
How grateful I am for our garden this year. As I am every year. We are grateful for the food of course, but also for the time spent among the beds, in the dirt, under the sun.
Giant hollyhock leaves down below! (That is a 10 inch pot beside it!) No blooming hollyhocks this year though. (Sad.) But new cosmos have been greeting us each morning and soon the calendula will be shining it's bright face up to the sun. Happy!
And the gnomes have been making us happy too.
Last weeks storytelling and gnome crafting was inspired by an exciting discovery in the forest.
A tree trunk smashed up by a bear, to get at the ants inside. Look closely on the right and you can see scratch marks from it's paws! (You would have to click to make the picture bigger...)
Aspen leaves singing in the treetops.
Thistle stalk for snack. Peeled of course! She harvested it herself.
And the magical gnome talk continued all week long.
Oh my, blogger is being funky with pictures. Glad I got through that. There has been so much that I have been wanting to share here, wishing to write about, but goodness how quickly the time passes!
Speaking of which, I am coming very close to my 100th post! Perhaps later this week. And I have a nice little giveaway planned too!
So see you soon :)
