Christmas In July

We are down to 6 months before Christmas so for some of you, have you started thinking of ideals for gifts and stockings. If you pick up an item here and there, that really helps out. Less searching later and spreads the expense out.

Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Collection


You can click on picture to make it bigger and read titles.
My collection of Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. My friend has one book on slow cookers. Have been buying them since '92 or '91.In the last 2-- that was published I have a recipe in them. Fast Fix Meals and Summer In the Country. Last summer was the first time I ever submitted recipes. After seeing some of my copies over the years, I have some people interested in collecting them too. They eventually retire some books.

First picture is one of my MIL's clematis. She died in 9-95 and we dug up the plant and brought it home. Grows on our TV antenna.
The yellow flowers are of the Evening Primrose. It blooms at night about 8:15 or alittle later with such a pretty scent. A close up of the primrose. The blooms fall off or dry off the next day.
The lillies are along alittle of our ditch to the west. They just multiply themselves.

DD with our OUTSIDE kitty by her. Thomas keeps appearing in the house for longer periods!!!! Think we are all guilty of him coming in. Plus the kids friends bring him in.

This is a picture of my hummingbird pot by the pond. It has salvia, cigar plant and pineapple sage in it.
