Delights of Gardening

My first successful sunflowers

My favorite thing about this time of year (the rainy season) is experimenting and growing new things in this land on the Nile River. Since we just moved into our brand new house in April, it's been very fun to plant flowers around the house, a vegetable patch in the front, and a small garden behind the house. Not only do I love to see things grow but I actually enjoy weeding. I like to get down on my hands and knees and think and pray as I pull out weeds and beautify my garden. It's so rewarding!

We're getting a great cucumber crop this year

Our 1st watermelon - we had to pick it a little early since some grubs were already helping themselves to it!
