I planted sunflowers this year.  Some of them are red and orange.
All of them are gorgeous.

I have been sporadic with the blog the past few weeks.  Just as my husband finished more chemo for the cancer that spread, my elderly mother fell and fractured her pelvis.  He is feeling much better and the hope is that he can have a substantial break before more treatment is required.  She is doing better in the rehab facility for now. I hope to return to a somewhat normal routine.  Thanks for visiting!

This little fellow jumped on my wrist while I was working in some potted flowers the other evening.
Cold and wet.  At first I thought a bird had pooped on me, but was happy to see that it was a tiny, tiny frog.
He would fit nicely on a quarter.

My apologies for not returning your kind comments.  It is my turn to have multiple sick people to tend to at the same time.  Posting a photo takes a minute, but browsing and commenting takes more time than I have, so I am not able to keep it up right now.  Thank you  for understanding!

Red, white and blue . . .

I wonder . . . is it wrong, strange, ironic, or in any way remarkable to use English transfer-ware
in U. S. Independence Day themes?  Just saying . . .

Summer colors

Here's my annual peach and blueberry contribution.
This year I have some green thanks to a few ears of corn in the background.
"Roas-neers" as my grandfather called them.
You know "roasting ears".

Turner General Store

The Turner General Store looks to be on someone's residential property between Attalla and Fort Payne, Alabama, U. S. A.
