A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Mini Pumpkin Thoughts and a poem

This is the little packet of seeds that were planted. This is what they are supposed to look like.

Here are the 3 plants from 3 seeds today.

Pumpkins in the Flower Bed, by Balisha
The pumpkin seeds were planted...you've heard this tale before..
My tiny gardening friend was knocking at the door.
Can we plant seeds today, in my yard there is no room?
A flower pot was found and planted very soon.
Each day the seeds were watered and one day there was a shout..
Awesome, was the word she used when they began to sprout.
The vines are growing happily now, in my flower bed..
I thought of them last night, vines were dancing in my head.
I dreamed the vines had grown to overtake the yard..
In dreams my thoughts can multiply, it's not so very hard.
I woke this morning with a start and hurried to look out..
The vines were quite happy and not scrambling about.
I breathed a sigh and had a thought..I wondered how much longer..
They would be content to stay and not begin to wander.
I think that they will grow by leaps and bounds to climb..
The porch and all it's railings and really look sublime.
My little neighbor will be thrilled the first pumpkin she will spy..
Her little garden in a pot...the very first for her to try.

I do hope that we get a pumpkin or two out of these. She and I have been taking good care of them. I will probably have to buy some, so I can use them in decorations. I like to hollow them out and use them as vases.Hope you both have a great weekend too.

The stems look a llittle weak to hold pumpkins. I don't know how these will turn out. I may have to sneak a couple in the pot and say..."Oh, look!"
