Well I thought I had commneted, but I can see I did not. Your front door is charming and inviting. The pork chop recipes look delish. You are a very good cook. Have a lovely weekend. Clarice


Dear Selia,
Thank you for sharing all the lovely photos and your gardening happenings. I love the Autumn arrangement you made for your front door, it is so beautiful! The color of your door is beautiful too. I hope your cantaloupe will ripen soon. Your roses are so pretty and Miss Flora is adorable.

Thank you for sharing the recipe. I loved the name you came up with, very clever! Enjoy your time in the garden and sewing your aprons. I look forward to seeing them.

Such a beautiful Autumn arrangement on your front door!
I love your kitty, and what a wonderful name. If we ever get another cat I want to name her Mrs. Tiggy Winkle (from a Beatrix Potter story).
It sounds like you have a delightful day planned!


p.s. Your collection of quotes are very inspiriting!


Hello, Dear Selia!

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog-we must be getting your normal fall weather, because it's been in the eighties here! Everything looks so lovely in your garden, and it sounds like you've been busy planting! I love white lillies, too. When we move (hopefully soon) I want to plant a pink and white lily garden, for Victoria, since her middle name was Lily.
Your cat is very regal-looking, by the table(AnnaMarie thought she was holding the table up, at first!), and I agree that they are a welcome addition to the garden. Dogs and chickens, however, are a little more destructive!
Good luck sewing your aprons-I'd love to see photos of them when you've finished.

  • "...I want first of be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact - to borrow from the language of the saints - to live "in grace" as much of the time as possible...By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony...I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace from which I could function and give as I was meant to in the eye of God..." by Anne Morrow Lindbergh Gift from the Sea

~A Garden of Thoughts~

  • THE Lord God planted a garden In the first white days of the world, And He set there an angel warden In a garment of light enfurled. So near to the peace of Heaven, That the hawk might nest with the wren, For there in the cool of the even God walked with the first of men. And I dream that these garden-closes With their shade and their sun-flecked sod And their lilies and bowers of roses, Were laid by the hand of God. The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth,-- One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth. For He broke it for us in a garden Under the olive-trees Where the angel of strength was the warden And the soul of the world found ease. ~~ by Dorothy Frances Gurney~~
  • To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich, to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never, in a word to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common, this is to be my symphony. - William Henry Channing
  • Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. - Marcel Proust
  • There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling. ~Mirabel Osler
