I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

It's a foggy July morning in the garden.

It's hard to believe July is here but I was greeted by fog in the garden before the sun quickly burned it off.  My favorite time of the day.

Do you have a favorite gardening sweater?


You'll find an absurd amount of sweaters in my closet but this one is special; it's reserved for gardening.
It's an old Irish knit.  The tag says "natural" color, meaning it hasn't been dyed.  It's fuzzy from wear but thank goodness, no one put it in the dryer before I found it!  Of course it's a consignment find from a rummage sale.  
The tag also says "handknit".  I love that about it and I think about the person who knit each and every stitch.  I wonder; did they garden too?
