If you’re a garden!
“But green‘s the color of spring!”
Soon it will be pea-pickin’ time! I used to plant my peas end of March, beginning April, along with other cool weather crops such as lettuce, spinach and radishes. I didn’t especially like radishes but I tolerated them because I grew them myself organically and could enjoy the fruits of my labor within 30 days! Lettuce and spinach took a little longer if I could keep the rabbits away. Loved living out in the country more when I gardened. There were no small varmints to ruin your crops because the big varmints got them and the bigger ones never came around my house though they were sometimes spotted out in the fields.
Even though my garden in the city was not successful at all as far as a source of food, it was a nice sanctuary to relax in after a hard day’s work.

Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton Michigan is the happiest place I know of, no matter what the season. I have loved nature since I was a small child. Plants, animals, smells, the feeling I get just walking with the breeze on my face, everything about outdoors!
Fall is an especially beautiful time to me and I wanted to share some of this with you. Take care and God bless!
There are so many creatures you will find if you keep your eyes open and your camera ready.
