Morning Glories are temporary flowers but oh so pretty. They usually only last a day but I look forward to going out in the early morning and seeing them in bloom. It is a beautiful way to start the day. This year I planted several colors but all that grew seem to be the blue. Oh well, I’ll just be thankful for what I have.
My vegetables are doing well and I am so happy with them. We should have fresh mustard for dinner tomorrow. I wanted to have it tonight but I kept flagging around and I thought it was too late to gather some today. I like to gather my greens early in the morning.
The collards, onions, radishes, broccoli, cabbage all are growing nicely.
Last Friday we made cages for the tomatoes and we have several small tomatoes on the plants.
And I predict we will be able to have lettuce from our garden in a couple more weeks.
This is the first time I’ve tried to grow lettuce in containers. I researched it and they say it can be done so we shall see. All I can say is so good so far.
I also planted some red cabbage in containers last week; just to try, I never grew red cabbage before.
My hot peppers are doing great. We really don’t eat them so I will pickle them and find someone who likes spicey. They are pretty and fun to grow. The sweet peppers had a nice sized pepper but some varmint decided he needed it more than I do. I will put cayenne pepper on the plants and that should deter him. Those peppers are for my grandson so the varmint does not know who he is fooling with.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed day and will come back soon.

This beauty is said to only bloom at midnight. A very dear friend of mine gave me a cutting of this plant and I as so thankful to her. She warned me that it only bloomed late
at night. So this year it is loaded with flowers and I just had to sneak out that at 4:30 this morning before I went for my morning walk and grab a peek. I was so excited when I saw this wonderful flower. Yes, of course I had to pick one of the blooms and take snapshots to share with y’all.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day .

I took this photo of the setting sun on a cruise to Cancun a few years back. There were so many beautiful sunsets and sunrises and that water was the prettiest blue.
Next the water with waves from the ship.
Thanks for stopping by.

Looking out at the back of my back yard on a misty morning.
Coquina is our favorite Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. We also love to visit the Atlantic on the East Coast of Florida. On Coquina there isn’t many large shells but the beauty of the water makes up for the lack of shells.
Thank you for stopping by and God bless.
The Photo Challenge this week wanted details. This mushroom was growing in my yard a while back and I was blessed to get a photo of it. I have no idea what kind it is but I love the detail and how it looks like a mound of meringue.
Thanks for stopping by and happy posting to you. God bless.
I took this photo while in Texas recently and thought it would be good for “Street” entry. I know it is my second one but I wanted to share.
For Developing Your Eye post “Water.”
It began with an idea and a dream; start a family, build a house and barn and turn them in to a home. The babies came one by one and what was once boards and nails became a home filled with laughter and yes, some tears. Then the children grew up. They left for college or distance jobs. Their life journeys no longer needed the small frame house and old barn. It was forgotten and left to end its journey in neglect and disrepair.
