Vegetables growing in the garden.
Cherry tomatoes are nature's candy to me. My husband would never believe we have any of these sweet treats, because they always get eaten up long before we make it back into the kitchen.



                              "A vegetable garden in the beginning looks so promising and then                      after all little by little it grows nothing but vegetables, nothing, nothing but vegetables. " (Gertrude Stein)

I so disagree! It grows nourishment, happiness, family togetherness, pride of hard work. I am so thrilled and grateful with each vegetable we pick.

Aunt Marilyn came over for a quick visit and Lilly must have seen her drive up. Lilly was insistent on going outside and having us follow her. She walked right up to the passenger door and pointed to get inside. She sat in the seat and tried to pull the seat belt on and wanted the door closed. She had decided she was going for a ride. Sweet Aunt Mar took her for a ride around the neighborhood. 
This picture was taken the moment the ride was over. She was thrilled!
She still doesn't talk all that much but told her dad all about "umm car... umm car" on the phone later.

A big sister found some markers and apparently no paper and thought little sister's face was just as good a canvas anything.
