And I thought I was really do ok for me with my postings, or so I thought. And now here it is the next-to-last-day of August, 2013.
I guess I was so much busier than I thought I was:

My daughter and her love, Kawika came to visit in later August and I am one proud mama. She is growing or I ought to say ‘has’ grown into a remarkable young woman and she has found a mate for herself that is as wonderful and beautiful as she is.
I watered my gardens this way with such love and caring hoping they would show-off their finery just for these young lovers on their first road-trip out of Washington, and they did:
Stormy August, Taos, New Mexico
lots and lots of amazing sweet, nourishing rain-storms came and gave blessing to our part of the world. And we loved it….everyone, even those people that are use to complaining about the weather, were quiet in their verbal blessing of joy and bliss, and we got more rain:
this is what the rains brought, Blue of Taos
A few years back the meadows of El Prado turned blue, but then they didn’t. Wildflowers come in waves of differences over the time of years. Does that make sense. Watching the patterns are so wonderful for me, the progression of times changing and growing.
New Mexico Penstemon
I adore these wild flowers and they really didn’t bloom this year at all, (actually this was taken in July of 08) but I was missing them, because they come in waves as well. It all depends on rain, how much we get and when. What time of year it rains, plays a hugh part in what blooms and what doesn’t in that season.
Acequia of Taos, New Mexico
Beautiful water flows freely with all the rain flowing everywhere.

August brings our sunflowers blowing in the wind
I love this even slightly fuzzy, because it reminds me of all the big storms we’ve been having. I adore rain, thunder and no lightning storms. Actually I love the lightning too, but NOT this year, not here.
My crowning glory this year and Rachael loved them.
Lily’s are just incredible and I really had no idea until I grew these. And their fragrance is divine…….

I had to buy some, but I got them going, finally……

one dark night by the full moon of August, 2013
we found this spider making a hugh web
the next morning she was gone (thank goodness)
All Things are Possible
My daughter and her mate were coming and having a bit of a few bumps in the road getting the final details together, so I got into the uplifting, think positive quote thing going on. I posted this on Facebook for her. and she made it and we got to meet Kawika. What a joyous way to spend August, 2013.
