Another Good Day!

Thursday, May 09, 2013

LOL, anytime I wake up on this side of the dirt is a good day! Seriously! But today has been filled with beauty and wonder.

It's so good to be back to walking - My co-worker and I took the same route as yesterday, and even though it was a little hotter, it's gotten a little easier. She's a pain management patient, so walking in the morning before work will never work for her, so my game plan is to walk after dark when it gets too hot during the day. Chances are, we can manage a brisk walk in 95--100 degree heat (yay! Summer in Florida!), I think we'd be much wiser to walk when it's just a tad cooler.

Yesterday, I told you that the bush beans were making an appearance in the garden. This is what they looked like today:

It's funny, but the first three rows of beans have sprouted and sprung up perfectly. The fourth row has only sprouted 1/2 the row - Just weird. The next two rows I planted - the ones that are just coming up - have sprouted perfectly. Go figure?! Here's a picture - the 4th row just stops half way.

Look close at rows 5 and 6 - almost every seed has sprouted:

And check out row 1 and 2 - Tiny green beans have started to form:

It's so amazingly calming to come home and walk through that garden!

Well - One more workday and I can get some rest. Maybe.

I'm looking forward to your photo shoot over the weekend.
