Wildflower Wednesday, June 28, 2017

The fourth Wednesday of each month is Wildflower Wednesday
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 24, 2017
Carolina Wild Petunia, Ruellia caroliniensis, is hardy in US zones 6 - 10 and may be found in shady or partly shady woodlands across the southeastern United States. It is a host plant for the Buckeye Butterfly Caterpillar.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 24, 2017
Each Carolina Wild Petunia bloom stays open only one day, but the plants produce a lot of blooms.

Happy Wildflower Wednesday!

Goldfinch, June 27-28, 2017

ABC Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday
Y is for Yellow - the primary color of an American Goldfinch

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 19, 2017
American Goldfinches, Spinus tristis, are migratory birds whose range covers most of North America. During breeding season the males are bright yellow with black crowns, wings and tail; the females are a duller yellow.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, January 6, 2017
In the Winter their non-breeding plumage is a light yellow with brownish wings and tail.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
Goldfinches are strict vegetarians (seeds only). You can attract them to your yard by providing thistle seeds or sunflower seeds.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Harvest Monday, June 26, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
We are eating the last of the Spring Onions that I planted in March. I grew these large 'Fordhook' lima beans a few years ago. Even though they have been in the freezer for years, they were almost as good as fresh beans when I cooked them for lunch last Wednesday. Cantaloupe from a Farmer's Market and cornbread muffins completed the meal.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 23, 2017
This year I planted 'Improved Taylor' beans. I have blooms and tiny pods!

A friend gave me the seeds. I think they are a kind of pinto bean.

Happy Gardening!

Willy Nilly Friday 5, June 23, 2017

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, and Floral Friday Fotos

1. Hurricane Cindy (Sky Watch Friday)
Lee County, Mississippi, USA, June 22, 2017
We have increasing cloudiness as a weakening Hurricane Cindy moves inland, but the main force of the storm is to the west of us. Today's forecast: a high temperature of 82F (28C) and an afternoon thunderstorm.

2. More Guitars
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 20, 2017
While I was in Tupelo on Tuesday, I photographed a few more of the Tribute to Elvis sculptures since people seemed to like the ones I posted last week.

You ain't nothing but... (a hound dog) ...Howling all the time

Blue Hawaii...Aloha from Tupelo

3. Something Hatched
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
From looking at photos on the Internet, I think it might be a Blue Jay, and I have seen Blue Jays at our bird feeders.

4. Who would have thought...
 Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 20, 2017
...that a rolled up water hose would be such a good back scratcher? Or perhaps she is giving herself a massage!

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
We are not sure of her exact age, but she adopted us in February 2010.

5. A new purchase (Floral Friday Fotos)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 19, 2017
