~ a family portrait{of sorts} ~

when we got home from church on Sunday...

everyone grabbed their gardening tool of preference for a family photo, gardening the hedge...
though 3 of us are missing, the spirit of our family shines through

pulling the weeds, nourishing the soil, mowing the grass, raking the leaves, shoulder by shoulder, heart by heart, toiling with joyous exuberance :)

Today is catching ribbon wands & sprinkling seeds of togetherness!! {i love Benjamin Franklin's daily question, "what good have i done today"!}


  1. that is the kind of family gathering I love to see!

  2. I love that Ben Franklin quote.
    and the family photos with garden tools!

  3. Hello,
