Beauty beyond the Green Garden Gate! 
 This is one of the prettiest plants I’ve ever seen in my garden.  It’s from an old Hubbard Squash seed that I planted earlier this spring.  I can’t believe it’s just now blossoming in hopes of producing an edible delight. 

Per my past posting, I’m hoping to use this pic in some creative form.  Maybe I'll set it into a fairytale setting or sketch it or who knows what ~ all I know is that it’s my newfound inspiration and therefore I’m happy.

I had to borrow this pic from the internet.  It really got me to thinking – what is it that other people see in me that I don’t? 

Ever since I was young it seemed that people believe there is more to me than what I see.  Through the years I’ve heard that I’m so talented and still I don’t see it.  I’ve been told I should be writing children’s books, cook books, creating artistically and still I can’t seem to find the motivation.

Today I pulled out some art supplies and shortly after I tucked them away in frustration.  What happened to my so called talent?   

Please don’t misunderstand this as a pity party because I appreciate that I’m blessed beyond belief. I honestly just wish I could see what others see in me - yet it eludes me.
