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.
I hope I can get corn processed next weekend. We are experiencing the cooler temps also. Makes me think about winter. 😦 Around here those flowers are called surprise lilies… I think I like resurrection lilies better.
Beautiful picture of the corn fields. It is cooler here as well. No humidity durning the day now so even with the temps in the mid 20s it still feels cool.
I love corn, there is something about biting into the sweetness of it. YUM!
I have never seen that lily before but it is beautiful.
Have a wonderful weekend.
That is pretty corn! Thank you for sharing the lovely flowers with us as well. I like the ressurection name better too. smile It’s good to know your labor will be enjoyed through the cold winter months. Have a wonderful day. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
The pictures are beautiful — so green, blooming flowers, and a nice bench to enjoy with a book! (happy sigh) I sure hope you got to relax a bit after putting up a good bit of corn.
The corn sure looks good. We only put up about 65 containers of corn this year. Your flowers sure are beautiful. They add some beauty to the garden.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy your cooler weather. I think we are headed to 100º again with a lot of smoke in our valley.
I hadn’t checked your blog for a few weeks and it was so good to catch up on you and your family. We were busy the month of July with the girls and their families here. Amy and her family were in MI for three weeks. She worked at the MI office two of those weeks while the girls stayed with us :). Sara and her family were only here for 5 days. The day they left, we canned 14 qts. of beans from our little “city” garden. We’ve been enjoying fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, as well and there is a local produce stand near us where we buy fresh corn. Doesn’t get any better than that!
Love seeing your pictures and now I can “picture” the setting after we were there. 🙂 What a peaceful and picturesque place to live! We so enjoyed our short visit with you and your girls and grandchildren :). Hopefully, it won’t be so long before the next visit. Take Care….Love you!
