Puppies and Plants in Dry Garden

We have been so busy with puppies that we barely had time to take pictures of plants. 
Here they are in the potager heading for the shed where the fertilizer is kept! You can tell we are not used to puppies!

Since it hasn't rained for months, we spend a lot of time watering as well.  As you can see the garden is way ahead of itself for this time of year.

 Don't think we have ever had so many swallowtail butterflies.

  Most of the garden is a "dry" garden tolerating lack of water.

As the drought continues we trust the Lord to give us wisdom and priorities in all things:
  • How to care for those we are in charge of, (puppies)
  • How to care for the garden when water becomes scarce
  • Our daily walk so that we might bear much fruit.  
“Blessed is the person who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that send out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”  Jeremiah 17:7,8
