Good Morning Life

Good Morning Life

Everyday is a new joy to wake up to.

It’s so therapeutic to roll out of bed to wander outside to a heart stopping green world I can call my own.

My Sanctuary.

The grass is greener here.

The packet called them Contenders.

 These cute bushy babies had lovely purple flowers but it was like magic the string of beans appeared!

This Green Bell has gifted us with 4 amazing peppers before we get to enjoy these.

It is also one of my absolute favorite plants to photograph.

Like most of my plants I was so excited to grow them I didn’t take the time to research them as I should.

As you can see, the mint is now growing into the Jalapenos since I did not plant it with a container.

Lesson learned but I am still excited to see where this yummy smelling plant ventures.

Mini Okra Forest.

Cuties.

Bob the Basil is the Original Gangsta here.

My favorite Christmas gift I have ever received.

He’s a gift who just keeps giving.

I can never seem to get over how amazing it is to walk out back and stick my toes in the water for the koi to nibble on.

My life is truly a dreamland of enthralling nature that teaches and inspires my soul.

What gave you joy this morning?

Snapshots in Another’s Sanctuary

I adore the garden our wonderful little household has created. It’s beautiful and life-giving. But what else I love is the inspirations of another’s wonderland. Here’s a few captured moments of my morning in my friends’ garden …

I love this pineapple!

Bloomin’ Beauties 

Just enchanting.

purple is my all time favorite.

so majestic.

I love the shade of pink,

or is it red.

clusters of pretty-ness!

Mini Jungle of Veg

They have a few of these pumpkins!

I can’t wait for ours to get that far along.

Hot Banana Peppers swishing in the breeze.

I believe these are another pepper, not sure if they’re Jalapenos though.

Cherry Tomatos !

I think these were the Yummy Bells.

Koi Fish and Turtles!

First time I got see them!

I hope you enjoy these joys I got to see this morning as much as I have.

No Dirt?? No Problem Part II

Yesterday was an eventful day for the house.

A lot of creative energy buzzing and swirling about.

I don’t have the largest garden budget and love to venture beyond the typical use of soil.

Dustin, being the innovative engineer he is, created our first models of the aquaponics creations we have now scatter around the house.

The long root is the sweet corn Dustin placed in.

The Ballon Mollys think I’m feeding them.

The left one, Jabba the Hut, is prego.

I got so excited I made Dustin create a floater for some Sweet Mint.

Then when you wander outside…

More seedlings galore!

Tonto standing guard.

Used a restaurant size Balsamic Dressing jug, a bath squishy and styrofoam  to float.

My first one is a Pond Pumpkin.

They say pumpkins need a lot of water…
