"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

My Summer Garden ... the one the rabbits eat, winter, spring, summer and fall


Rabbits ate all the blooms - they love roses ...


Our Lady, Vine blossom laden,
pray for us.


Topiary - severely trimmed this year.


Hosta blooms needing to be cut back.

  2. Indeed beautiful. You are blessed to live among such beauty! Truly enjoy it. Do you have birds singing God's praises? Here in So. Calif. Despite the drought, the singers come out at all hours unless it is really hit.

    I love to listen to them.

  6. but....Terry.....where is little Lady Gabby ? .....you have posted no beautiful pictures of her for Oh So Long !
    Does she still yearn to make friends with the bunnies ? Do you two still play ? Do you brush her daily ?
    now....These are the important questions, These are the important moments of ones' life.........
    How very grateful I am to God for our animals, how I do weep at times over the fate of so many.
    oh ! yes ! and your garden is wonderful ! I have moon flowers again this year, I love how they bloom all night and retreat by day, sort of like me.....

    1. I'll try to get her to settle down for a photo op - she's been busy monitoring the birds outside and is fascinated with the baby rabbits. For some reason she's decided she doesn't want to be brushed - I have to get a new one - because she used to love brushing.

  7. Oh and I forgot: I heard that the rabbits really appreciate that you provide such great nutrition for them and their families, including but not limited to their antecedents & progeny.
    What they also really like is the safety of their restaurant. They can munch with complete relaxation. Very important for digestion.

  8. Alright Martha Stewart.(though I know you probably are really Jamie Durie..)we know your yard is perfectly landscaped...quit bragging!

    Looks great as usual! Oddly enough we have had no rabbits eating anything this year. The backyard I understand as my little terrier, uh, ELIMINATES the threat, but not in the front either. I think we have had so much rain they are busy munching on the full lawns.

    Your yard looks the perfect place for a Abbey Roads Cocktail Hour..is there a pond in your yard, then we can have a "..picnic with raparian entertainments!" I will bring the champagne and nibbly bits.
