Beautiful Corn

The girls and I have been busy working up corn.  At first, we didn’t think it would do very well because of all the rain we had but it seems to have not hurt it any.  We put up 104 ears in the freezer.  That should do us nicely through the winter.

I wanted to share the view with you all from my back porch.  It was a beautiful morning here in Floyd.  Our temperature this morning was 48 degrees.  Amazing!  Grace and I wore jeans to the garden this morning to pull the corn.

This is a picture of some flowers we planted at the edge of the garden.  They sure do add color to the space and look very cheerful.

I have shown you all this flower before.  We researched it and found some people call them “naked ladies”.  Well, this year, we found out more about them.  They are also called “resurrection lily”.  I like that name so much better.  In early spring,  they will come out as foliage, then they die back and in late July or early August these beautiful flowers come up.  Amazing how God works!  All the years we have lived here, the green foliage has come up and I just thought it didn’t have bloom on it.  I never made the connection between the foliage and the flower.  Remember last week when I helped Hubby texture a ceiling, the lady who owned the house gave me all this information.  She had them growing in her yard as well.

Well, that’s about it.  Time for us to eat lunch.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

 

Flowers

This lily has had a rough beginning.  In early spring, it was trampled and broken by a big footed pup.  It seems to have survived nicely though.  I have waited all spring to see what it would look like.  I think it looks pretty next to the purple flowers.  I most definitely will have to separate some of these flowers next year.  The bed is extremely crowded.  Yesterday was a busy day.  The girls and I cleaned out both of the big freezers-making room for this year’s harvest.  This took a major portion of the day.  Then I helped Hubby by mowing some before he came in from work.  For supper, I used some of the pork tenderloin I had cooked the day before.  I like to cook a large amount of meat at one time and then use it in different dishes for another meal.  So I put the tenderloin in the oven with some potatoes and roasted them.  We also had corn on the cob from our freezer, biscuits with butter and homemade blackberry jam for dessert.  Today is starting out to be a beautiful day here is Floyd.  Lots of sunshine.  Tomorrow our church is doing a horseshoe tournament down by the river.   We will play horseshoes, eat lots of good food, listen to good music and in general have a great time.  It amazes me some people think Christian life is boring.  We have a blast at my church!  We are small in number but we do lots of things together.  We are family.  I will try to get some pictures to post of our activities.  This is the first year we have done this and we are hoping many will come.  Baby Sam and Mom are still doing good.  Daniel says he loves his baby brother. Thanks so much for your prayers.  I hope to go down to see them soon and get more pictures.  Take care and God bless.
