Butterfly Paradise

This is a picture of our butterfly bush and our rose of sharon.  I think this is a very pretty spot in our yard.  The butterflies and the hummingbirds really love this area so there is always lots of activity here.

Just one of the many who enjoy.

Our gooseberries.  This bush has been loaded this year.  The girls and I so enjoy eating them.  I looked them up on the internet once and read that they are a dessert gooseberry.  They are very sweet and delicious.  I am thinking about looking up a recipe for gooseberry pie.  I think it would be good.

Yesterday for “ lupper” we enjoyed steak on the grill, french fries, steamed carrots and broccoli.  The broccoli was our first from the garden.  So very good!  I know lots of you think I misspelled supper, but “ lupper” is our name for a late lunch and an early supper.  We just combine lunch and supper together and got the word “lupper”.  We have “lupper” a lot when Hubby is home and then have just a little snack later in the evening. 

Time for me to go hang some clothes on the line, enjoy God’s sunshine and the birds beautiful songs.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Dreaming of Summer

I’ve probably posted this picture before, but I thought we might all need a little color today.  The Butterfly bush and the Rose of Sharon are always full of brillant color.  The rocks came from over the hill on the farm.  I got Marvin to bring them over on the tractor.  He said this was a first for him, usually people want to get the rocks out of their yard not put them in.  I think however it adds to the charm.  Today temperatures will probably be in the upper 20’s.  They say a chance of wintry mix for Friday.  February is almost here though.  Somehow in my mind, in February, my thoughts turn to spring, gardening, flowers, sunshine.   Winter,however, does allow more time for things like sewing, quilting, crocheting.  I am almost finished with Julie’s quilted wall hanging.  I will post a picture of it when I’m finished.  I attempted to make homemade hamburger buns yesterday.  I do not own a hamburger bun pan so I thought I might could put them in my cast iron biscuit pan.  Not a good idea.  The tasted good, however, they looked like jumbo muffins.  We ate them last night covered with cooked deer and gravy and mashed potatoes.  No one seemed to mind how they looked.  I don’t like to give up though so I will try another approach next time.  Well, better get started on school.  God Bless.
