Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog friends here in the USA and round the world.
"Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice and sing praises.
Sing to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of a psalm,
With trumpets and the sound of a horn;
Shout joyfully before the Lord, the King." Psalm 98:4-6

Funny knit hat, blue hat and zinnias

I bought this cute red hat for a young friend of mine, and next to it is a blue hat and scarf for me. They were knit and prayed over by ladies at my church, and all the money raised goes to help local people. Each hat and scarf has a tag attached which says "Hand made with love and prayers in every stitch by the Knit Wits" of our church. Any items not sold are given to local charities including one for children with cancer. All the yarn is donated.
This photo is a two fer since it shows the zinnias I bought at the Farmers Market, organic and locally grown. I picked out twelve stems for $5 and got a nice bouquet.
Guess who the blue hat and scarf are for? Lucky little me.

Garden quotes and photos in my garden

"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see." John Burroughs  To this I would add "all the prayers I want to pray and all the family I want to see."

"Our first job is to prepare the soil. The best tool for this is your neighbor's garden tiller. If your neighbor does not own a garden tiller, suggest that he buy one." Dave Barry

"I have great faith in a seed." Henry David Thoreau

"Laying out grounds may be considered a liberal art, in some sort like poetry and painting." William Wordsworth
