All this, in these raised beds, and pots dotted around my kitchen garden. They've grown so much over the last few weeks, it's hard to spot some of them. I took this photo yesterday evening, it was warm, beautiful evening, we've not had many warm evenings this year. I relished it. Pottering as the sun sank, perfect.
 
 
 
There's been so much sadness just lately, my heart aches, so many innocent lives lost. I count my blessings, I have many. Have a very lovely Sunday, and if yours has already gone, I hope it was a good one. Thank you for visiting me, and thank you to those who have left comments. Let's all count our blessings today.

  4. What an amazing list of produce, and so many delicious ones in there.A mini market garden!
    Every night I always reflect on the day and count my blessings (something my granny taught me to do) but I agree at the moment the grief that some are suffering is almost overwhelming.
    Try to concentrate and focus on the beautiful surroundings you have created. The beauty and peace of nature always helps. Hope the sun is shining for you ... Love Paddi X

  6. You have done so well with your garden space, puts me to shame, I must make more of an effort.
    On the other matter, we should all take time to breathe and appreciate what we have, so many awful things happen in this world x

  10. Now isn't that great that so many things grow and florish in your garden. It looks amazing. But it makes one sad that so many bad things happen. It makes me small and still.
    Love,
