Short garden tour


This is the only rose bush that is blooming right now..these soft pink roses have a pleasant scent as the breeze flows through the bush...as long as I deadhead it, more and more roses come...evidently its located where the heat doesn't bother it as much as the other roses....
we have the strawberry plants under shade cloth and surprised they are still producing....
this is their first year and we are encouraging them to spread more than anything...I took this photo yesterday. That's about all that is going on in the garden, everything else is in flux with this heat...so looking forward to the fall...

There is a big discussion on Menifee 24/7 about prayer before the City Council meetings and I made a comment on that posting...if you are visiting from that site, please go down on the left of the blog, to the historical list and check out Wall Builders, after reading the quotes from many of the Founding Fathers, I am convinced they were mainly committed Christians and not deists as is thought today...I only have their words to go by but knowing a little bit of history has convinced me. There are tons of documents that support this and are little known by most people. There is a link with a list of those documents. Our school system does not teach this type of history so its not altogether your fault....unless you know where to look and just listen to the talking heads, you'd have no idea...
When I was little and entering kindergarten, we had prayer before school started and when we had our snack...I remember being really impressed by that. The prayer seemed to settle us all down. I don't remember our teacher having to spend most of her time disciplining unruly children....
Extremists have gotten so much press, some people are under the impression that all Christians are snake handling, floor rolling, wackos...not true at all, most of us lead quiet lives, doing good and trying to "be at peace with all men". We are the ones when trouble comes, who pack our cars with supplies and drive hundreds of miles to help those in need...after Katrina, hundreds of churches, families and individuals did exactly that. and the first rescue group on the scene was The Salvation Army and believe me, everyone was so happy to see them!
