Summer Memories

School has started back and all is left of summer are the memories that we have. And we can relive those special times in our hearts anythime we want to. I am sure you made memories with loved ones this summer so think about all the ways you can share them and enjoy them over and over again.

The first thing that comes to mind is "pictures". So I will share a few with you.

Seeing my grandson enjoy the surf was the best.  Just looking at this picture makes me hear the surf and relive the giggles that were going on.

I adore it when I see him and papaw doing something together that they both enjoy and this was one of those things for sure. There was so much excitement going on that I don't think either one of them got much sleep the night before.

This seagull was after the tiniest of crabs I had ever seen. They were very fast in the mud at low tide, but the seagull not so fast. He missed alot before he finally caught one.

I am sure I will find other ways to enjoy summer's days gone by!

Lots of stuff

Busy..... busy...... busy!! Lots to do and doing lots. it seems I cannot keep up this summer. I just had a few things I wanted to share with you and a short time to do it in.

The flower gardens are showing their stuff this year. Here is an example of a 4 o'clock that should be about 18 inches to 2 feet tops in height and it actually measures 4 feet 7 inches. Yup, you read that right. It just keeps growing and growing!

I just love this color and it was the theme color around my house this year.

When not in the garden I have been putting alot of produce up for the winter months. Here is some zucchini relish that I made. We love this with pinto beans or to use as relish in potato or macaroni salads. Also mix with a bit of mayo and we have fresh tarter sauce.

This is one of nature's pretties that was sent to my garden for me to enjoy. And enjoy it I did. I hope you do as well.

I love reading all your comments and don't forget there is a give away coming soon. SO if you are not a follower please join with me and get ready!

Summer's Bounty

Summer is a busy time. And this summer has been a hot time as well. So I will have to say that I have spent as much time as possible with my body submerged in water. Now it really did not matter to me if I was in a swimming pool, a lake or the ocean, as long as the water was cool and refreshing.

But as you all know summer is also the time for produce from the gardens and the country side. So here is some of what else I have been doing this summer.

These are bread and butter pickles and they will be so good during the long winter ahead.

Peaches that we bought while in South Carolina were canned up in pint jars to enjoy this winter as cobbler, shortcake or perhaps with some cottage cheese.

The rest of the peaches became peach jam. This was taste tested by the grand while it was still warm and it recieved 2 thumbs up.

Most of the time I do not capture pictures that I am extremely fond of but an exception was made when I seen this one. It is peaceful and relaxing to me and I can even hear the seagulls as I look at it. Now you might ask what in the world this has to do with "Summer's Bounty"? Well look to the left, this guy is cleaning the days catch and that is summers bounty at its best.
