Grandpa Bill

I came across this photo of my Grandpa Bill (far left) the other day, and I'm always amazed at what a wonderful photo this is. A snapshot in time, when my grandpa worked the mines and he was smiling and healthy. I like that.

Lazy Weekend

Jewel Nasturtium

Purple Kohlrabi

It's so nice having a lazy weekend at home. Cooking good food, watching migrant flocks of birds flying in off the Gulf, and tending to the beautiful garden. Yes, is good.

I love this mix of Kale and Kohlrabi.

I didn't know broccoli grew so big!
