Setting Fire

Today is the feast day of another of my favorite saints, more so now than ever: St. Catherine of Siena.
Siena also happens to be one of my top two favorite towns in Italy, I loved it there!
So much to say about this saint, but this quote from this amazing holy faithful pushy humble strong woman, Doctor of the Church, really sums it up:
"If you are who God made you to be, you will set the whole world on fire!"
-St. Catherine

I love that quote, it's true now matter how big or small your fire. And I love that last image, how beautiful. Are you getting ready to grow your garden?

Ah, Christine, the garden... pondering...scaling back. Got basil and herbs in tho and they are going great guns, always wonderful. A peony is beginning to bloom, my roses are sadder than sad maybe dead idk...and I"m thinking of turning the raised beds over to kiddos and just tend a few tomato pots. A busy summer ahead, I am feeling I might need to pull back..
HTanks for asking tho....I'll post when I get really into the mucking about in the dirt. How bout you? or is it just the chicks now?
