After the rain...

We've had quite a bit of rainy days during the past week (I believe its because of these tropical storms) but the cooler weather and much needed rain was delightfully welcomed :)

Asparagus Fern

Miniature Rose

Muscadine Grapes

Garden Gate

"He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass, as showers that water the earth."
Psalm 72:6

Makes me want to come and sit in your garden and enjoy its pleasures.:) I absolutely love the sights and sounds of simple, homey, backyard gardens.

Thanks for sharing, Mia.

Wow! Those are really beautiful pictures! I don't really have a "garden". My mom and I grow herbs, but we don't have many flowers or things. You garden is LOVELY! Thanks for posting pictures!

What beautiful pictures Mia! I love the 'old-fashioness' of them.
Thanks for posting! :)


Julia said...

Oh, I love your pictures! The Muscadine grapes one is really good! :)

And thank you SO much for posting that salsa recipe! My mom and I made it and it was SOOOOO good!! Wow! Is it your own recipe?

Hello Mia,

I too liked the picture of the muscadines. We have scuppernongs. (I am not sure of the difference between the two.) What do you guys do with yours besides eating them right off the vine. We have an abundance!

Mia said...

Thank you for the lovely comments, ladies!
Julia--I'm so glad you made the recipe and enjoyed it! I had found this recipe a while ago (online) but revised it quite a I guess it is original :)
Mckenzie--I've never heard of those type of grapes; I know there are so many different varieties! So far we've been eating them straight of the vine! :)
