How are you, Blogger Buds?
I for one am glad the full moon has waned. Last week was crazy. Someone got shot at the Walmart we shop at. I'm very pleased to say we weren't there at the time. Cattle were ambling down the main street of town. And a car down the street caught fire.
We were on our way to see the Grands over the weekend when we saw the Great, no make that Great-Great or Great-Great-Great Pumpkin. It was tied under a tarp in the back of a pickup and took up the whole bed. Biggest darn pumpkin I've ever seen. Wish I'd taken a picture instead of gawked.
Saturday we went to an open market that sold every kind of pumpkin imaginable, except the Great Pumpkin, flowers and preserves. I picked up two that caught my fancy and a red coneflower. I've been lusting for one since I saw them this summer at one of the local gardens we visited when we went to see our daughter and SIL. It looks pretty puny compared to the established plants but it will catch up.
We went to visit a friend's property last week. It was like visiting a National Park. So serene and pretty. The water rippled as it flowed in the creek adding to the sense of peace.
We are seeing cotton fields pop up. We haven't seen them in years. We are wondering if it's possibly crop rotation? Anybody know?
Got pumpkins? Coneflowers? Creeks? Serenity? Know anything about cotton fields?
