I am a stay at home wife and "retired" homeschool Mom of one grown military son. Mother-in-love to one absolutely wonderful Daughter-in-love. ;) I'm so thankful for Jesus who loves me so much that He dug me out of the miry clay, wiped me off and gave me new life! I've also been blessed with a Godly, wonderful and totally hot husband :). It's my desire to make it my life's work to be the wife and mother that God has intended for me to be. He restores me daily for all my faults, and I'm so thankful! I hope to learn more about you all and what special gifts you have to share.
My first cabbage of spring...this one was shredded for Baked Egg Rolls - one of my families favorite dishes. The second harvested cabbage was "bartered" with my best friend for green onions and cucumbers from her garden. :)
Butterfly weed is so pretty, I almost hate to call it a weed.
It freely seeds itself throught the garden and when I find a plant growing where I don't want it, I simply dig it up and move it to the butterfly "area". It grows tall, over 2 feet and looks pretty in a flower garden.
Caterpillars LOVE it and will eat it to a stub, but it always comes back...God has created it to do exactly what it should.
I try to keep a lot of plants in the garden for the caterpillars to munc on. This little guy will become a gorgeous Florida Swallowtail Butterfly with a radiant blue coloring. Here he is munching on some butterfly weed which has a pretty orange flower...see tomorrows post.
