Scuppernong time!

I find it hard to believe 12 months have flown by and
these grapes are ready for picking and eating!
Today a neighbor brought these and left the bag
hanging on my gate for me this morning!
They are fabulous...He had to pick them in 102
degree heat and high humidity!

I immediately sat down and wrote him a thank you card
stamped it and put it in the mailbox!

For someone to give you a gift such as this is rare
and for anyone to write a handwritten thank you note
is rare too..

I believe in good etiquette and for showing your thankfulness!

Southern grown Field Peas!

In the southern United States we dine on Southern Country cooked food.

That may be a choice of fried pork chops, fried chicken, fried
cornbread, steamed cabbage, stewed squash with onions, rice and
gravy and also fresh field peas.

These are fresh purple hull field peas!

I have a plate of fried pork chops, fried cornbread,
collard greens and scalloped potatoes for you to see
that I enjoyed at a cafe in Alabama..USA.

I planted and replanted a pack of zinnia flower seeds this year..
some of them died, some of the plants were dug up by my cats,
and only 2 zinnias grew and they are 6 foot tall!

I captured these butterflys and insects today on the zinnia

A visitor in August!

Each August we have a beautiful dragonfly that visits our area of
the southern united states of america...

You would know that it oomes in the hottest time of the year!
It was 115 heat index today as I photographed this dragonfly!
