Local Produce

 

 

One of the activities I do that I would consider an interest or hobby is to take photographs- primarily of flowers or my small ones. I love, love, love looking at them and you will find a number of them printed and framed all over The House of Two Gables if you come and visit us! This one is from August 2005. Since moving to our little nest south of the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains; we have tried to become good Southern Gardeners. Our yard has rebelled with force. The general rule of green thumb here is- if it was planted by Ms. Lillian before we lived here- it stays and blooms with abandon, if we tried to plant and cultivate it after we moved here; it will return to the Earth.  Sigh….many, many lovely plants from  local nurseries as well as the Jockey Lot have met their Maker under our care. But the lovely pomegranate tree that Ms. Lillian planted many moons ago still produces it’s super fruit. Now if we could just figure out how to get them down.

Anniversary Song

anniversary dance0002

Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
as that of the rain-soaked purple
of the white birch in spring?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
than on a warm fall night
under a Mackerel sky,
the smell of grapes on the wind?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And I’ll share them all for a cup of coffee
and to wear your ring

Have you ever had the pleasure of watching
a quiet winter’s snow slowly gathering
like simple moments adding up?

Have you ever satisfied a gut feeling
to follow a dry dirt road that’s beckoning you
to the heart of a shimmering summer’s day?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And I’ll share them all for a cup of coffee
and to wear your ring

And I don’t know how I survived those days
before I held your hand
Well I never thought that I would be the one
to admit that the moon and the sun
shine so much more brighter when
seen through two pairs of eyes than
when seen through just one

Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
as a face in a crowd of people
that lights up just for you?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
as when you wake
by the side of that boy or girl
who has pledged their love to you?

Well I have known all these things
and the joys that they can bring
And now every morning there’s a cup of coffee
and I wear your ring
