We're just a couple of country dwellers......

that love nature, hunting, fishing, gardening, campfires, crafting, cooking, canning, laughter and living!!

Ya just never know what I'll blog about next...

So visit us often!

Rural Thursday


August ALREADY!....





Can somebody please stop the clock!!...






I'm having too much 
fun smellin' the roses sunflowers...






Father Time can
you please give me a break here?

I need more garden time...






(and less heat would be good)











By plucking her petals,
you do not gather the beauty
of the flower.
                                          --Rabindranath Tagore






I'm thankful today for so many things...
family, friends,
sunshine, and flowers...

the rain we got last night!






And YOU!!





Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy August,
Lisa

Oh I don't want to stop the clock but would vote to slow it down:). We will be complaining about snow soon the rate it is going. Snow is white rain so that would work too. Love your photos awesome garden. B

I've no idea where July went either!! I've never had a month speed by like that one does, and I hope that August doesn't work up too much speed either, but sends a nice cool breeze instead! :-)
