Changes ~ In My Summer Garden

I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from an Old Manse

It seems a while since I have been here. I am getting back into school routine and enjoying a visit from my Dad.

I have had a lot on my mind lately so I thought I'd show you some of what is happening in my garden at the moment. A place where lots of contemplation also happens.

This beautiful little blossom is fruiting and turning into...

an eggplant!

This is my first and I hope for many more.

It is an heirloom variety, distributed by The Digger's Club, called 'Listada di Gandia Eggplant'.

Some floral parsley prettiness.

Water droplets are always beautiful, are they not?

Thyme and ...

I absolutely love watching my herbs and veges change and grow.

We are looking at changes this year. It seems 2010 is to be a watershed year, a year of much change and I am prompted to move with a certain flow of changes for our family this year.

I am contemplating:

~ the possibility of a new journey, walking a path that has only recently opened up to me.

~ revisiting paths recently travelled, with a new journey ahead.

And that about sums it up in a very non-descript sort of a way.

So how about you? What changes are afoot for you in 2010?

What changes are afoot in 2010? I'm still trying to catch up with the undone from 2009!

I'm really sick this week with a bad virus, which doesn't help one bit! Have been running a fever and staying in bed a lot. I can't remember being this sick in a long time. I guess one good thing is catching up on my sleep!

Your close-up photography is contest material. Have you ever submitted any photographs?

Oh I feel for you HS Mama, sending you hugs and kisses and wishes for a speedy recovery.

Thanks for such lovely comments for my photography. No I haven't ever submitte any. It's really only a recent interest so I am so pleased it is "comment worthy" :)

Get well soon.


Hmmm, any master changes coming up here? I don't know - at least nothing which is planned to happen, so I'm going with the flow of a just started year and we will see what will be happening.

Very nice picutres, the tomato is huge - so much sun giving your plants and herbs the right power to grow!

Have a nice weekend with your family,

Nina you know, that tomato is only a cherry tomato! You have been tricked by the illusion of macro photography :) Enjoy the flow of your year.
