I had every hope of having a bounty from my vegetable garden this year. There was not as much as I hoped for. Even so, here are some of the amazing home grown veges from my garden over the years!

I love acorn squash baked with maple syrup and butter!

I love taking a huge zucchini, hollowing out the middle, stuffing it with tomatoes, herbs and then topping it with mozzarella! It tastes just like pizza! Here are a few of huge zucchini!

For some reason, fresh home grown onions seem to be stronger in flavor than store bought. So, I now grow these every year!

Just plain onions!

And I love the flavor of a fresh artichoke! How about you?

Do it with your heart!

Do it with your heart!

This saying comes from the Dhammapada, which is a collection of quotes from Buddah. I once took a class in Eastern Philosophy and read the entire book. It took a while because the sayings really make you think…Here are a few more:

“Do not give your attention to what others do or fail to do; give it to what you do or fail to do.”

“As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.”

“It is easy to see the faults of others…it is hard to see our own.”

“Like a lovely flower full of color but lacking in fragrance, are the words of those who do not practice what they teach.”

Take each of these with you today, and see if you can find the truth for yourself! Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day! Be well! ^..^

Let’s begin with the feathers of a flamingo!

I was truly amazed by the colors of one of the ducks we saw when we visited the San Diego Zoo. This is the Mandarin Duck.

Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu

I just have to admire Lao Tzu for his wisdom and his words that I find inspiring! More Lao Tzu quotes:

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.”

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

“Great acts are made up of small deeds.”

May you have a magnificent Monday! Thank you for stopping by! ^..^
