I made cookies for the youngest football players for one of Lucas' games..
After a game..Lucas is soaked.. they all are..Max ,Oli,Noah..that's how hard they work.No matter how cold it is..they move so much they are dripping.
There he is after winning the game with his talented team mates..after just removing his helmet...all shapes and sizes..all varied talents..all determined.
It's a raw photo to me..he looks very different than he usually looks.
Jacques loved the true look of hard work..so I kept it.
I just adore our Littles.
I have no words to describe how they make me feel.
It's Jacques' screensaver now;)
Well I am still reveling in this season called fall.
It has been so cold working in the gardens...snow fell this afternoon late..
I have so many large perennial beds that I built 18 yrs ago..
I have to tell you..
what was a breeze at 46..is pretty much brutal at 64 almost 65.
The wind..the cold..OMGEE.
And I am sure you will all be Pinning this outfit.
I know ...we see ads of nanas w/ straw hats and flowing dresses..gardening..
I come in dirty dirty dirty.
No flowing dresses or straw hats;)
C'est la vie.
I have ripped out a lot of beloved perennials..I have discovered I love growing food:)
And more annuals:)
A HUGE Baptisia..was shovel pruned w/ Jacques' help..and composted..
Pinky Winky had turned into HUGE..I shovel pruned that and moved to the pond garden..
The list goes on and on..
Tarps full of chopped plants..what was I thinking at 47?
I am not even half done.
Killed me to rip out the tomato plants and basil:(
