2017 Thanksgiving.

Just a couple of scripture pix sent to me a while back from a very very special person, and a the Best part of 2017.

2017 has been harsh on things around the house, but NOTHING NOTHING can take away the best event that happened in February 2017!!! I'll be posting more of these, although i need to do a better job of picture taking.

Japanese Azaleas !!!!

One of my favorite bushes in the yard (Japanese Azaleas), forgive the 3 AM picture in the dark, but here it is, the Middle Of November and this bush is still green and Flowering. Well, we did have a large warm snap right after a frost or two, and wow, the elephant ears sprouted again, and i still have a few cherry tomatoes.

I bought this bush 3 or 4 years ago in Hazlehurst, MS. moved it a couple times, seems to be happy in this spot and I have just rooted 4 or 5 more from this one bush. I just love it, In my opinion it puts many other Azaleas to Shame, I'll have to be sure and take a daylight picture. I truly need a new Cellphone too.

Doorstep surprise fall 2017

I suppose these are properly considered a Christmas surprise, but i guess the diff colors they come in now make it a Fall.
Sitting on my doorstep yesterday afternoon, a fall surprise from someone very dear to my heart.

didn't quite make it to November,,,, but NitaBanita approves.


Nita Banita loves when the heat blows, I decided to burn off the dust in the blower,,,,was hoping to make it to at least November, but a few cool nights had us getting ready,,
One heat loving kitty,,, next to her fav rug, Seagrass, I like the rug because she does some of her best grooming rolling on it.

Her and Silly Dilly are not the happiest with a food change lately... NITABANITA, is the laziest cat i have ever had. She's getting a bit tubby, so i did a lot of research and have been offering more canned food ... ALL my kitties in the past thought it was a treat.
These two have turned up their noses at most I have tried. ESPECIALLY SILLY DILLY.

have a great weekend Ya'll.... yes my weekend starts on Friday.

Morning Mushroom sighting.

So, I don't really remember seeing a cluster of mushrooms like this (they caught my eye on my 3:30 morning walk about) , well not any of size. I needed something to help gauge the size of them, not humongous though. maybe this afternoon i'll do another in the daylight if i remember. Is the proper word Cluster? doesn't everything have a word for more than one?
such as Murder of crows?
a mob of meercats?
gaggle of geese? or is that flock?
gang of meercats?
pack of dogs, 
herd of horses?
and so many more, I'm only guessing here at most.

and now the mushrooms are black and wasted away. really odd lump of mess. and yes, i forgot to take a picture, but who wants to see the ugly things???

Pineapple Guava bush/tree ,,, thank you RD.

soooooooooooo, SEVERAL years ago, i was discussing trees for a privacy screen with RD. she suggested Pineapple Guava,,, i had given up on them pretty much,, I think they are getting a bit too much shade, beautiful blooms

at times, but that was all.

I was checking fence line this weekend, and WALLAH,,, they may be a bit small, I know nothing about this fruit, and the bush/tree leans trying to catch more sun, but lookie,,,, maybe twenty small fruit.

i'll have to research and see what they look like ripe, and the size.  The bush/trees are only about 6 feet tall, Gotta hope the dogs do not notice there might be edibles.

thanx RD!!!! and the place in Crystal Springs,,, although i think someone else owns it now.

wallah, I added a photo of the PineApple Guava fruit,,, those two bush/trees did pretty well for the first time. AND, yes the dogs have found them, they were not to sure of them at first, played with a couple, rolled on them and et them!!!

I hesitantly tasted them, not bad, not sure they are totally ripe, and even though the "net" says rind is edible, too spotted. I'm letting them ripen indoors and will try them again.

Silly Dilly Trespassing

yes, of course kitties(especially Silly Dilly ) must trespass when you open a door to a room seldom open to the public.

THE BIG EVENT of 2017, (maybe)

no, I didn't take it, and No , pretty sure its no a real photo, but digitally enhanced. but I love it, just love it, so hopefully I'm not infringing on someones ownership. 
and yes world wide a great big event, but it did not eclipse the biggest  happiest event of my life this year. Maybe one day I will share that experience.

Orange is the new mushroom???? or alien?

Ok, dunno if you can see them, i should have fetched my better camera, but anyway, check out the tiny orange mushrooms(??) are they mushrooms? i dunno, but very interesting. they are acutally a brighter orange than the picture shows, I must go do some research on the ww. 
VERY Teeny and small clusters.
i'll have to walk back to the back and see what stage they are now, they were not shaped like mushrooms, well in my uneducated mushroom guess.

Althea trees by way of Japanese Redneck !!

I hope i called them by the correct name, anyway, RD gave them to me a couple years ago, they are finally blooming more than the past couple years, I think they get too much shade, so they might be a bit spindly and need fertilize, but Hay look, and i think they are three different colors, Silly Dilly heped take pix. and oh, the fence needs a new post, i have the post just need to get busy and dig a new hole. Not so easy in the summer with all the clay.

Recipe from Miss Market Bulletin (i think)

SO, I THINK i found this in a recent Miss Market Bulletin, but now, I have to wonder??? After telling J-redneck, i decided maybe i better post it. I took this to my mother since she loves new recipes but they need to be fairly easy these days,,,, Mainly because if she is out of ingredients and she might substitute.
It was really yummy , and she said My brother and his wife fell in love with it.

I love these type recipes in the summer time.

another oldie, another truck. and a reallly smart dog

another oldy, hope i didn't post this already, YUP, Forest Hll Stables way back when, 1979 or 1980.
I fell in love with this truck,,, Toyota dully? never have seen another. I had to have it, but it just wasn't practicle, So i didn't keep it long. and there it Trey, my first Shetland Sheepdog, and probably one of the smartest I ever had. I love that breed and had two of them, but the shedding was awful , so never got another after they crossed over the rainbow bridge.
this little dog (after he turned almost a year) could learn a new trick in 20 minutes or less,
He played dead, roll over, put matches out, said his prayers, jumped through a hoop to music. and many more. He also wanted to Herd something really bad, he ran circles around the horses, and children.  BUT HE DETESTED people when they smoked. he refused to have anything to do with them when they lit that cancer stick. Miss him and the little female Treni so much. She was smart but no tricks for her, she seemed to think i was punishing her, dunno why. and when a puppy , she was afraid of the camera. 
I thought i had a really nice picture of the two shelties on my flash, but havn't found it, Ill be back!!!

First truck 1975??? days of old

YUP, my first truck purchase back in the day,,, I started out with a small car, loved it but realized if i was going to have horses there had to be a truck in my life. I'll have to find a picture of that first car, red white blue, old Vega,,, For those in the know, RD,,,,, this was Forest Hill stables way back in the day.
