Friday Flash 55- Gardening gratitude


Every Friday write a short story of 55 words
no more, no less, then report to the G-Man!!!!



To watch my garden grow gives me
insurmountable pleasure.
As each new flower blooms on
ripening vines too long to measure.
I check tomatoes for little critters
I pull weeds and plant seeds
Growing an insectary, and sacrificial plants
to keep it all organic
Pride for me is harvesting
Natures own with my little children.

Here ya go G-Man, would have pictures but something is wrong with my upload thingy on the computer, need to fix that and show you all how much it is growing, i have 8 tomatoes today and there are probably a dozen huge flowers on my squash plant. Just awesome to watch it come alive. Hope you all are well will try to get by and comment on your 55's. todays thought; "Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some."- Dr. Robert Fulghum

You are loving your garden! I'm so happy for you.

And stop counting my 55, missy. Actually I use iGoogle word counter, and it counted 26.2 as one word. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Great place you have here! You have an amazing story and such a great outlook on life. Thanks for sharing your life. I look forward to reading more. Excellent 55 too. Gardening is also one of my favorite sober things to do!

Do you like fried green tomatoes? That's one of Kathy's most favorite dishes.

Soon you will have tomatoes and zucchini growing all over. Too bad I don't live near Kansas. You could fry us up a "mess" of green tomatoes and bake some (sugar free) zucchini bread.

By the way, come over tomorrow(Monday) and help me celebrate my 1000th post.
