Glorious Gloria's Garden


 

Hello Sweet Blogging Friends!

 It's been a few weeks

since my last post . . .

so I thought that I'd better get with it,

before you think I've left

the planet :)

 

 

These are photos I took

while walking through

my dear friend

Glorious Gloria's

garden.

 


 

I visited in the spring when

her lilies were all in bloom

and forgot to take photos.

I've kicked myself ever since,

because her garden is amazing :)

 









 

Of all the photos that I took

this one is my favorite :)

I do love sunflowers!




 


 

 Well, it's a busy time of the year

for me, harvesting, canning and

of course that not so fun job

of pulling up the garden.

I do it one row at a time

as my veggie quit producing.

These are zucchini loaves

ready for the freezer. 



 

Thank you for stopping by . . .

I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I know that many of us 

have times when we feel discouraged.

Especially after watching the TV news.

Our world, in so many ways, is

a true and growing mess,

but take heart . . .

 

The Lord is good, 

A strength and stronghold

in the day of trouble;

He knows those who take refuge

and trust Him.

             Nahum 1:7

God bless you all!

Your blogging sister,

Connie :)

  6. Your friend does indeed have a glorious garden. Your zucchini loaves look so good. I neither grew nor bought any zucchini this summer and I feel I missed out. Jokes are made about how abundant zucchini grows but no one that I know grows any. I'll look at the grocery store. Surely they still have some.

  8. Thank you for that verse, Connie. So appropriate for the times --from weather to politics, health and so on. The Stronghold is our only hope. thank you for sharing your friend's vibrant flowers. You two must be sister, 'cause your garden is just as pretty. Oh and your sweet sunflowers. The little dears look like they are crying for the end of summer. ;-) I always look forward to your posts. So pretty and encouraging. Love reading what you are up to. And so, as we wade through all of the world's difficulties, let's keep our eyes and our thoughts on our dear Lord Jesus, our only true hope. I'll be thinking of you as I pull up my poor bean vines that did not make it thru this summer's very hot days. BLessings!

  11. Thank you for sharing the beautiful flowers from your friend's garden with us! Your zucchini bread looks mightly delicious, too. I don't watch the news on TV - I haven't in many years. It's too negative and depressing and being a highly anxious person as it is, not good for me. Have a beautiful and blessed weekend!

  13. your friends garden is so pretty. I only have a few plants to pick up, but my cherry tomatoes have gone wild so there will be a lot of picking up of that. Enjoy these fall days.

  14. Gloria's garden is indeed glorious. I love those sunflowers, too! I've been cleaning up my garden bit by bit and pulled out the zucchini plants a couple of days ago. The nights are becoming too cool for them. Still have some tomatoes ripening outdoors, and have planted winter kale and lettuce starters. Enjoy the change of season, dear Connie.

  15. The flowers are so beautiful but you know what, the sunflowers are my favorite too. Your friend does grow some amazing flowers. Your zucchini bread looks delicious. I found one last zucchihi in the garden. Think I will make a loaf.

  16. Your friend's garden is really spectacular... I love sunflowers too! We are getting our garden beds ready for winter too... pulling up the plants, placing cardboard over the soil and covering it with mulch. I still have beets and carrots growing and a few tomatoes and squash are still producing. but the other beds are done for this year.

  17. Oh, such lovely fall flowers! Yes, the sunflowers are gorgeous! And so are those loaves of zucchini bread! YUM! I haven't had any of that in a long while! I love how industrious you are! Thank you for sharing your beauties with us.

  18. Hi Connie.. came over here to see if you had posted again and YES! You did! The flowers are gorgeous! Does Gloria live near you in the same climate? How did she grow such beautiful flowers in this drought??? There are some I don't even recognize. Didn't recognize the 3rd and 4th photos! Love that flowering succulent. Oh so much work this time of year.. especially for those (like you) with huge gardens! Mine was so puney there's not much I have to do! Just have to pull out the lemon cukes.. they didn't do well at all... and have a few carrots to pull up and a few beets. I see new flowers on my peas! I bet you have been super busy with baking and canning, etc. Those zuchinni loaves look marvelous! I must make a carrot cake when I pull up my carrots.. there's probably just enough for one cake! I'm kind of glad to see things waning as I'm all done in with watering, cutting back, dead heading, pruning, weeding, etc. And that is with me not even doing any canning!! I would still like to get a bunch of apples to make some applesauce for the winter months.. and maybe an apple pie or two. But have been super busy with other things, so it may not happen. Take care.. have a great rest of the week! Hugs.. Marilyn

  19. Amen Connie! I, too, have been absent from blogland, both writing and reading, because life and it's business caught up with us. Lots of doctors, physical therapy and other things to get Mom taken care of at her new home. Plus, still dealing with the remants of her house sale. I have really missed my friends here though and I want and need to connect again.
    We have many decisions to make for ourselves too and we're trying to turn it over to God. The world is in such a state right now and it's tempting to pull inside ourselves and protect our families. But, God wants us to continue to try to reach others for Him. We are so blessed my dear friend.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Betsy
