worth the waking early

out and about
early morning stroll
low hmmmmmmmmm
faster than a speeding bullet
a slow ponder...

huge beetles this time of year

low hmmmmmmmmm
wow! oh!

turn 'round
sun rising
just right
trio of hummingbirds
bottlebrush tree

a flush of awe washes over
amazing universe this is this is
worth the waking early

worth the waking early
rarely i cut the stems
never so beautiful as they are au' natural

envy the fragrance of this pink beautylady
wild rose
heavenly scent wafting imagination
grandparents recalled
oh lovely wild rose
worth the waking early

Thank you so much! I promise I'm not going to start stalking you, but have you read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver?

yes i have - a while back

i myself strive to go to the store as little as possible. now is the time of year in central texas that gardens are flourishing. it's all i can to do keep up. i've home raised chicken in freezer, eggs in the fridge and veggies and berries out the door. i still shop for dairy, oil, flour, sugar, honey, molasses,vinegar, some herbs, tea, coffee and grains.

i should have my own honey come fall and then maybe i can knock sugar off the list. i am trying to make my own tea this year - we'll see how that goes.

it's fun! at least for me it is. most importantly for me is knowing where my food comes from and for the most part, i know exactly where it comes from - home.
