Pretty In Purple
Showy Tick Trefoil
Oh Mister Bluebird, it seems you are frowning at me.
Immature Bald Eagle
The warm day drifted across the prairie kissing all of the flowers everywhere. It provides a lot of chances for growth with both wild flowers, but has also graced my garden with huge tomatoes and lots of peppers. I start both from seed so I can have some unique varieties to enjoy. Many come over just to enjoy my extras and admire the flowers and everything else I have planted. I have eight varieties of tomatoes and fifteen varieties of peppers. Lots of potatoes are nearing their time to be dug, bordered by okra and lots of herbs. Today I had help turning the crank on my Victoro strainer and made over a gallon of tomato juice. I will pick and roast peppers next packing them in olive oil. I laughed having forgot a lot of apples I put away last year. I need to fix some as a side dish and perhaps a pie. Come on over and help me fix something sweet with these. Fried pies come to mind, but with the heat it is hard to turn on my oven or stove for very long. The best coffee will be ready and good conversation to all who want to join in.
