some more photos of my gardens





these are some pictures of my flower /rose gardens . you will also notice zinnias and sunflowers . pay special attention to the monarch butterfly with his yellow dots on his wings along with a silky black color . I enjoy this time of year because the butterflys really come out along with the bees . The bees really like sunflowers a lot . I would like to think that I am contributing to the bee and butterfly population . I think it is important to make sure that the bees and butterflies continue on this earth . for one without bees we would have no food because bees pollinate our flower and vegetable plants . I find that if you don't swat at bees they tend to leave you alone as well so please teach your kids and grandkids not to swat at bees and most likely they will never be stung in their lifetime . enjoy the photos folks ,

Storms amd lighting

we had some bodacious storms here Friday night and they skies opened up with tons of rain I tried to get a photo of the lighting but mother nature would not co operate and give me one so these horrific looking clouds were all I got . Oh well guess that is what you get for wanting to capture lighting on film so bad ....

A really good book

I read this book because there is a movie coming out starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslett . I hope they do this book justice . This book went into wonderful detail about all the little things that could go wrong . This was written by Charles martin who lives in Jacksonville Florida . He used Jacksonville for some of the background information on the main character Ben . It was a pleasure and a delight to read this book . I hope you will get a copy and read it yourself and I will see the movie when it comes out on dvd.

this item has done wonders for my health

As some of you might know I have bouts with arthritis and this hermatite magnetic bracelet has done wonders for me along with lots and lots of prayer. I have been meaning to post this since I got it . I purchased it off amazon and so far so good . It has small pictures of saints and our Lord and savior but the company has others that don't as well . I am very spiritual and do believe in the power of prayer and God and if that offends you then I'm sorry but this is my blog and my rules . You know the old saying "my house , my rules " don't like them too bad LOL . But seriously folks I have never felt the pain relief from anything like I have this bracelet and it does wonders. If you would like to order one or however many then get in contact with me and I will point you in the right direction . I have done quite a bit of research on the benefits of hermatite magnetic stuff and you can google it and find out for yourself . Oh well I'm through running my mouth now have an awesome day and a super good week and behave out there .

A morning haul out of the garden

well I went out to the garden this morning and did some harvesting . The odd shape cuke is a sumter and see from the looks of things I will have some more soon . squash is straight yellowneck and I prefer to pick it at 4-6 inches and any bigger the taste is just not the same nor is the tenderness . the yellow pear tomatoes are wonderful and tasty and some of the best growing cherry tomatoes I have ever had . So if you have a garden grow away folks , grow on ....I enjoy my visits with my readers .

The marriage Lie

wow what a book . This book will have you not wanting to put it down from start to finish . Yes it was that good . So many twists and turns and I could not figure this one out until the very end . Kimberly Belle has done a bang up job on this book and hope to read others from her in the future . This was a great book and it was a library read so back to the library it goes and on to my next book .
