We have storms coming our way too in NC:) I adore your little greenhouse!! What a sweet hubby.

I tried pickled beets a few weeks ago and they were a delight. The ones you had sound wonderful!


The peanut butter tree is an amazing grower. I could not believe it! It is also a very attractive tree to have in the garden. Stay safe now and enjoy the show!


Lovely tree...both names are new to me. It looks familiar, so I will have to keep my eyes peeled while out walking.

This August my phone has been silent with severe thunderstorm warnings. Last August, we were getting them everyday, all day, for nearly two weeks. August finds us with monsoon like weather around here. Being married to a outdoors man found us driving up to Big Bear in the downpour. He loved every minute. I just prayed we did not get hit by lightning.

Thanks for sharing your lovely garden.
blessings, jill


Thank you for sharing your garden. Wish peanut butter trees grew in my garden zone. I think I am a bit too north. Speaking of weather-back in early July we had 2 tornado warnings-pretty rare for Mass and pretty terrifying. We ended up not having a tornado but the sky opened buckets and poured SIDEWAYS. Felt like I was going to Oz. Annie

Your Glory Bower is stunningly beautiful Vicki. I'm going to have to look around. I don't recall ever seeing one around our neighborhood, but I'd love to smell it.

It looks like this summer has been good to you!
