Oh my goodness...that dog looks exactly like mine! He actually recently adopted us...just showed up and never wanted to leave. He's such a great dog...but we have no idea what his breed is. He looks sort of like a german shepherd mix but he is very small...probably 40 lbs??? Anyways sorry for the long comment...just wanted to share my excitement! Great post...nice shots!

Now I have garden envy. It looks like a wonderful day you've pictured there-- and the shelf full of goodies has my mouth watering!

LazyTcrochet said...

Amazing pictures! Your garden is lovely. Mine was overrun with weeds this year. This is the first time in 20 years that I haven't canned tomatoes!

Walk in the Woods said...

fookadesigns - my pupper, Halley, recently found us too! We've only had her about a month now. She's a blessing. She's a pretty big dog, though not as big as my old dog, Karma. BTW, she's a Lab & Burmese Mountain dog mix.

Thanks carapace! Mind you, these are images from the past few months - not all a single day!

lazycrochet - I hope you are able to tend your garden next season and can some tomatoes again! In the meantime, don't discount the value of "weeds." :)

Always have gardening envy, your reaped rewards look so satisfying. I hope we can do this someday. I miss having grown up in a small town on Cape Cod, where we all had gardens and wild fruits galore!

Beautiful that you were adopted. Dog spelled backwards is ...

Oh I love this photo series! Everything looks SO beautiful! Loved how dirty you were after gardening - now that's throwing your heart and soul into it.

Thanks for showing the White Sage spray, I had no idea you sold that through your shop, now I do. ;-)

RainbowMom said...

Oh my goodness! I want to come and hang out with you for a day! What a fun time you have. :) I'm truly inspired to my core to get off this computer now and go PLAY! Peace beautiful goddess!

TiLT said...

Wow - wish my thumb was that green. The mud look is great btw :)
And the doggie - so cute...

fooka: ours looks lots like that & 40lbs'ish, my bros too - both are shepherd mixes; one with sharpai & one w/beagle...maybe he's like them?

Your photographs always tell such a rich story...thank you for sharing them!

Rosebud Collection said...

You are doing really good in the canning department..I use the freezer..Good to be supplied, I think. Like all the other things you do too..

Ryan said...

The photos are all so vivid. I love the basket photo. Are those Elder Berries on the basket? Some great memories in those pics.

Walk in the Woods said...

Ryan - those are Phytolacca (poke) berries - I also call them Shamans' berries ... they are big medicine--in every way--and worthy of the grandest respect. We'll talk ...
