I don't live in the country anymore. I actually live in a culdesac. I wish I lived in the country, on a river with lots of animals and lots of trees. However, I am very aware of how blessed we are. Maybe someday I will live in the country again. Or maybe we will just make our place in town feel as much "country" as possible.
I may not have tons of trees or even a garden this year but, I do have a BIG tree and it looks like it would be great for climbing.
I may not have 11 acres with enough trees on it to provide our Christmas trees for the next 30 years but, I do have a few of my own sticks and that makes me happy.
I gathered a few sticks and used them to support my out of control sweet peas.
There's only one poppy in bloom right now but, it's yellow and it's gorgeous.
Jeremiah gave me some thyme and rosemary plants for my Birthday. It's so fun to see them growing. I think we'll have rosemary and thyme chicken and roasted potatoes for dinner. I was sad to not have a garden this year but, at least I can cook with some fresh herbs that we grew.
I'm hoping the sunshine sticks around for awhile. I think I need more time outside. I need to do more deep breathing under that big tree. It was nice.
