Community House Garden

Our garden contains both vegetables and flowers. We have just finished our first crop of sugar snap peas–yum! In the photo you can see the dying pea vines on the fence. Gardens are lots of work, as you know if you have one.  God has blessed our garden with some plants we don’t have to plant anymore; they just plant themselves. One example is the Gloriosa daisies (yellow and red) you can see in the foreground. We haven’t planted any in years and always have plenty. In the spring we have oriental poppies everywhere that started with a single plant many years ago. This spring we also have dill growing everywhere; the flowers are cute and and the spice is nice.

It’s a “Golding Diamond Day”

Today is a “Golding Diamond Day”!  I haven’t thought of that phrase for years.  One of our founders, M. Cay Andersen, would use it to describe just such a day!  The air is crystal, birds are riotous with song, and every plant, tree and flower is bursting with intense color.  These are the beautiful Cape days before the humidity comes!

It’s also a “Golding Diamond Day” because Jesus is helping me see some things about myself (along with the help of my sisters!).
