In June 2016 we sold Cedar Pond and moved over the mountains and far away. We now live in Deer Park , WA where the weather is a bit more extreme than Cedar Pond's and in spite of the challenges we're rejoicing in life in our new home with field and forest just outside our back door. God is so good to us !

Playing With Pumpkins & Squashes
I was playing with my ceramic pumpkins and squashes the other day trying to decide how I want to arrange them on our buffet.
This looks too cluttered but I am leaving the arrangement this way for now while I think about it. Do you ever decorate that way ?
Not all my pumpkins and squashes are ceramic. I traded a few dozen of my chickens' eggs and some lavender bunches for this huge blue squash at a Poultry Swap last weekend. Isn't she a beauty ? She even matches most of my home décor. I was told she is a meat eater squash grown from heirloom seeds. I am going to harvest her seeds and plant some of these beauties for myself. I have never been too interested in growing veggies and garden produce but now I am . Have any of you ever grown these ? Any tips ?
Still excited my favorite season has begun , I am doing a happy dance in my heart right now.
