A Rabbit's View of Our Garden

Here is a rabbit's view of our garden!
Aren't they pretty?

Our Garden Has Grown!

Here is our garden! I will show you the BEFORE and AFTER pictures.


And After^^

We happen to be in an area affected by drought, as you probably can tell by the picture of our garden and surrounding grass. However, we love our little plot and the sanctuary it provides for birds and sometimes butterflies; and, of course, for the vegetables and flowers!

I am weary of swords & courts & kings. Let us go into the garden... Mary Johnston

Busy Summer

Wow, we have really been busy--camps, swimming lessons, chores, yard work, catching up with things around the house that don't get done until school is out, etc. We have a beach vacation coming up, and we can't wait to enjoy the sun, sand and just all around relaxing. We look forward to posting pictures from the beach...

I know this quote doesn't fit the post, but it speaks to my heart at the moment:

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. Robert F. Kennedy

Life's a Beach!

My smiley, sweet-faced daughter and her best friend are frolicking on the beach together this week. I'm getting daily updates, and it sounds like they are having great fun together. I look forward to all the pictures and commentary from each of you!

Time Together

As you can see by the pictures, we had a wonderful time together in Gatlinburg, TN. For those of you who have not experienced Gatlinburg, well, think tourist spot in the mountains. Great place to people watch. All kinds of shopping abounds--from airbrush t-shirts, old-timey photos and candy, as well as speciality shops and great restaurants.

We love the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg boarders the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It's a lovely spot to get away and enjoy the sounds of nature; however, amongst the noise of traffic. If you want the action, settle in Gatlinburg. If you want quiet, enjoy all the beautiful houses for rent throughout the mountains above Gatlinburg.

All thoughts aside, my daughter and I had a great time experiencing our love for each other in a setting away from home life. I look forward to many more times like these!

Even if a day should go by when I don't say "I love you..." May never a moment go by without you knowing I do -Daniel Haughian
