When I looked at the weather map this morning, the whole Southeast was covered in red. Something about an "unstable air mass." What that means to me this afternoon is that I am here in the house listening to the rumbling of thunder outside. That is one of my absolute favorite things. Thunder feels like coffee, a good book, and a purring cat.
Earlier today, before the hint of any instability, I went out to do my chores.
(The word 'chores' makes me think of The Waltons. I bet that John Boy had to do some of the things I do: weed the garden, feed the horses, feed the chickens, figure out how the rooster keeps escaping from his pen.)
I took my camera with me on my chore excursion.
|These are called Happy Flowers. |
They are Black-Eyed Susans without the black eyes and they make me happy.
|This year I decided to stick with a color theme in the garden. Green (of course), white, yellow, and a little purple thrown in. Yellow squash, yellow corn, green peas, green oregano, basil, & rosemary. And some red when the tomatoes are ripe.|
|This Euphorbia is one of my favorite plants this year. The first time I saw it was in a pot on Mom's deck last summer and I fell in love with the delicate white flowers.|
|This ear of corn will be in my tummy on July 4th.|
|I really like how this grass has grown tassels.|
|And my favorite picture of the day............|
The Leaning Tower of Peas.
Something really needs to be done about that.
