Even though the day be laden,
And my path dreary,
And my strength small,
A song keeps singing in my heart:
For I know that I am Thine;
I am part of Thee;
Thou art kin to me,
And all my times, all my times are in Thy hands.
~Inscribed on an altar in the Hebrides
And here are some photos of the current state of our plants after all our Spring rain, then being basked by some summer sunshine. We had to water for the first time this year on Saturday.
Peonies have such a delightful but short season. I’m always in awe of their beauty.
These two are celebrating their 7th Anniversary. They spent Sunday without their little ones in tow and had a nice time in Spokane which included bowling. They met each other at the bowling alley in Colville and that’s where it all began. Happy Anniversary Dan and Jamie! We love the two of you together! God bless you with many many more anniversaries!
Hope you all have a beautiful week which brings us into July.

…your clematis is gorgeous! It is so hot and dry here that I need to water today.
Your garden looks beautiful, I love the clematis and peonies. Take care, enjoy your day and the week ahead.
True. All my times are in His hands. I try not to spend a lot of time
pondering that…just enough.
Your garden looks very happy and lush. I am supposed to be beginning
a lawn care program today. The plow did a number and it did not rebound.
Happy Anniversary to Dan and Jamie!
I share your sentiment for peonies. Mine have just started to open and I am thrilled. Your garden looks lovely.
Your garden is wonderful. A beautiful place to stroll around. Love it.
Your yard invites a meandering stroll! So much loveliness! Happiest of anniversaries to Dan and Jamie! (Wow. Seven. I remember when you were preparing for their wedding . . . Time marches on.)
“All my times are in thy hands” is comforting to me. Your garden is so lovely. The gardens over here are in much need of rain. Happy Anniversary to Dan and Jamie – how very quickly the years pass by! Happy week to you.
This is another uplifting blog post Ellen. The flowering plants are beautiful and the land looks attractive because of the trees. Thank you for the quote that you saw when visiting the Hebrides. Blessings to Dan and Jamie on the celebration of their 7th anniversary.
Oh your yard is so beautiful. Happy Anniversary to Dan and Jamie…..7 years already.
