Hello from the land of no internet.
It got taken out twice in a row by storms, but here we are again, hooray!
Just in time for tales, of the pumpkin vine variety.
In the land of never ending summer, a certain pumpkin growing girl lost all her vines to wild pigs.
Yes, wild pigs.
Javelina to be exact.
Yes yes, you've heard that tale before.
I didn't get angry in the end.
There is a twist!
The Pumpkin King knew she worked so very hard year to year.
Toiling in desert heat.
So, he decided to bestow a little pumpkin magic upon her after all.
And so it was...
That in the flower garden, where the garden swing hangs from a giant canopying mesquite tree...
Pumpkin vines decided to pop through the ground, slowly unfurling.
Curls and leaves gingerly twirling about.
Making their way up to the sky.
Having tea with ivy and swaying in the hot breeze.
Crawling up higher and higher.
Dancing up the bark.
Using string lights for support.
Gracing us with the greatest gift.
What would summer be like in Fanciful, Arizona without at least one pumpkin vine?
And so, I've been swinging with glee.
Watching my pumpkin vine climb the great big tree.
Delighted that the Pumpkin King did not forsake me.
He found a way to make it happen.
In the most magical little spot.
Where shade and swing meet up with a girl and a couple furs several times a day.
Where songs are sung out of key.
Where popsicles drip from elbow to knee.
Where candles and lanterns and fairy lights bounce off their enchantment by night.
That's where pumpkin goodness has found me.
Thankful hearted I am I am.
I soooo am.
Loving the winding twirling curling dance of the pumpkin vine.
Nature, curious character indeeeeed!
Makes me happy as can be.
Any fun little nature things happening in your neck of the woods?
I'm sooo happy to have internet again.
It's been a week and a half of struggling with it.
Imagine what we ever did without it?
I guess without it we never would have met, would we?
So, I hate to say this...
Because I adore seasons and appreciate them so.
I think summer has taken a toll on me.
Sweltering endless days.
Feeling just exhausted from the heat.
Going up hills early in the hot hot hot everyday.
I'm ready for a tinge of cool, how bout you?
A week ago I wasn't ready, but now I am.
It hit me, are you feeling it too?
I think the growing things would love a tiny break as well.
I'm certain of it.
