The subject is “The Gardener’s Intent”.

 In my entry, I am trying to convey what I love most about my  yard and gardens. ~ They are enjoyed. 

 I took the picture earlier this summer and I thought it fit the bill, at least for my garden.  The setting sun gives our fire pit area a spotlight, and the young fire give an extra warmth to the twilight of a beautiful day in one of our favorite parts of our garden. 

  It has come a long way since we moved in three years ago. 

  ~”Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.  A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world.  ~Ada Louise Huxtable

  1. I love the Huxtable quote! Your patio with fire pit looks very inviting. I can imagine sitting with a loved one and sharing stories as the sun sets. Delightful!

  2. I love the red motel chairs in the setting sun. Makes me want to get a bag of marshmallows.

  3. I love your area and would be out there at every opportunity. :)

  4. Very nice garden. I like the firepit, but I’m a dyed in the wool pyromaniac too. It looks very inviting and cozy, even though I am looking at it on a 92 degree 78% humidity Ozark afternoon!

  5. Gorgeous patio with that fire pit. And your garden is fabulous too. I would be sitting back there all day and evening long if I could.
