Gratitude Feast!

 With Autumn here, we decided to celebrate the bountiful garden we shared over the summer.

So Much Abundance ~ So Much Gratitude!

 

The girls and I soaked up the late afternoon sun and  harvested our dinner from the garden...

Solana picked our salad greens
 
and nibbled the sun warmed tomatoes along the way

the girls got down and dirty digging out the potatoes...


loving the fun of discovering them one by one!



We marveled at the abundance the garden had given us...



Luna gathered up a bouquet for the dinner table...

 Papa and Solana soaked up snuggle time while dinner cooked


Together we gave thanks

***

 For the golden corn and the apples on the trees
For the butter and the honey for our tea
For fruits and nuts and berries that grow beside the way
For birds and bees and flowers We give our thanks today
Blessings on our meal
And on our family!

Blessings to you

  4. That sunflower shot and the one with your daughter carrying the bouquet would make great postcards or notecards to send to family and friends:-)

  5. That looks so fantastic. We are hoping to move into a new house soon with more garden space and the first thing I want to do is plant a vegie patch. We have a very small courtyard at the moment which houses our rabbit so not much grows there.
