Planting seeds

As I look out the back door I ponder whether the pumpkins are growing. A few weeks back, Dorie and her Papa took to the garden and spent a few hours tilling, planting and hoeing a couple rows of pumpkins and gourds.

Dorie got dirty, I heard it took 3 washings to get the dirt out of her shoes; Frank got sweaty and they both had the time of their lives. I joined in for a brief few moments to snap a couple of photos and quietly faded into the background.

I don't know if we'll have any pumpkins or gourds this fall, that really isn't important but we'll have some special memories of a wonderful day.

shoes can be replaced and sweat can be showered away.. The memories Y'all are building with Dorie and I know will later with Althea are priceless. I love the pictures! And if you have gourds you can then teach her to paint a birdhouse for her yard.. and of course a pumpkin could be baked into her first pie! Oh and not to forget a Wonderful Halloween Spook for the porch!

thanks Patsy, I learned from the best... my children still love to come to your house and they are all grown, or think they are.
