My one remaining corn plant, that the garden pests haven’t destroyed, has produced two beautiful baby ears of corn!
The most beautiful thing about it is the corn silk on the top of them, creamy with a red tinge; like hair of a newborn baby.
The most complete joys in life are produced by the simplest things.
The northern flicker showed up in the vegetable garden when I went to refill my watering can.
With his festive attire of grey hat with a beautiful splash of red in the back; speckled waistcoat and jacket and black cravat; I picture the northern flicker as the ringleader of a bird circus.
He is a very jolly bird to see first thing in the morning and for that I am grateful.
It was a lovely drenching rain all night. When I went to see the vegetable garden in the morning, the tomato plants looked up at me and said, “Now that was a real watering. What’s up with the watering can?”
