Sun Setting On Our Field, by Rainer

Did the rose
Ever open its heart

And give this world
All its

It felt the encouragement of light
Against its

We all remain

Bloom Day, September, 2009

Frida loves to pick and eat borage.

Jasmine is finally taking off. Frida brings me sweet smelling blossoms every day now!


Rainer is not kidding one bit! He has become arachnaphobic this fall. Good thing he's got armor and the bugzooka to vacuum capture any offending spiders.

Oops, Zak accidentally pulled up the French Lavender pumpkin. Might as well carve it.

One more, a shot of the front yard today, lush and so much better than only a short 6 months ago.

Woolly Bear Invasion

Over by the corner climbing tree Rainer discovered several woolly bear caterpillars.

They are so big and fuzzy.

Can you spot 4 woolly bears in this picture?

Frida made a playground for four of them.
