My mom Margaret, and my sister's daughter Kayli came to visit us from the mainland for a few days. Yesterday we took them to see the community garden, and ended up staying and exploring for several hours.
Before we reluctantly departed, we all agreed that it is a magical place.
|The garden is more like a park where food grows.|
|We found ripe strawberries... and ate some of them.Yum!|
|We looked at all the flowers, and Kayli took photos. Lots of great photos.|
|I did some gardening in our 4X8 raised bed. Half is in strawberries, the other half|
currently has chard, kale, beans, potatoes, and sunflowers.
|We visited the pond and watched tadpoles and bugs.|
|Then it was time for lunch. We sat, relaxed, and enjoyed each others company. |
Linda is under the hat, Kayli is with her, and my hungry mom is in the background.
|Next time we will make pizza in the cob oven.|
|A bald eagle came to visit before we finished lunch (look up, way up).|
|Before the eagle left she flew over the garden, and us.|
After a great day we returned to our home, sweet, home on the beach.
It is fun to have visitors and share our simple life with them.
