In the Pink Saturday

We all love 
Pink Saturday.

I like to buy from Swann's because I can see online all the nutritional counts before I buy and I am not one to go out to the grocery store.

HH does all of the grocery shopping but some things are harder to find than others, so I order different things I like online.

These are White Chocolate Strawberry Scones.
Love them with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
They come in a square and are scored so as to be able to select to cook only one if you would like.

Finally tomatoes coming on.

Good fences and birthday girl.

A good neighbor is a fellow who smiles at you over the back fence, but doesn't climb over it.
Arthur Baer

Been a hectic week at our house.
A/C went had to have a new system put in.
Computer went down, no blogging for a week.
Everything is fixed now and I am so grateful.

Good Fences Thursday.

Thursday and time for
Good Fences

This fence line usually only has orange lilies but a little pink crept in this year.

 Must be some horses somewhere on this farm.

 A very good fence.
Keeping the children safe at the school playground and community picnic site.

Outdoor Wednesday- A place to enjoy nature.

Things are getting lush around here now.

Continuing my Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest trip in Ky.

 I looked this up  on the Bernheim website and it is called a bottle-brush bush.
They are everywhere at Bernheim.


This was one of the exhibits during the identifying the trees at risk in Ky. projects.

Want to give your youth a wonderful experience in nature I would recommend this to any one.
Accommodations, weekly programs and seasonal activities constantly for children and adults.
Beautiful restaurant using edible flowers and plants grown here.
(Not an ad. My own recommendation)

Traveling with Tom

Things sounded like Fort Knox in our neighborhood last night.
Fire crackers and roman candles everywhere.
To celebrate our nation's birthday.

Flags everywhere.

Street parties everywhere.

A proper birthday party for America.
