The Garden Wall

This May morning in MP’s Garden is a moment in time...

to feel by heart!








I am dependably watching the lettuces, carrots, zucchini, summer squash, peppers and beets.











































After putting me in charge of harvesting the vegetables,

he kept telling me I was missing the snow pea crop.








There they were~~ on the other side of the garden wall.



















We had been eating snow peas with brown rice, steamed and stir fried.

My thoughts were carrying these snow peas and carrots in a new direction.

























I blanched snow peas







and carrots and cut cucumber to match.

As I write this, even the doves are cooing.

Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.
