Fingerprint Friday.

This is a beautiful Fingerprint from God..My husband's garden..When you think of all the wonderful plants that provide food for us, truly a gift. Thankful husband is a gardener..since I am lousy at it...but I do enjoy freezing/canning so we have the best of two worlds.
Thank you God..

This information came in an email..Thought you all might enjoy reading and watching.

On the 27th Aug the Whole World is waiting for............. Planet Mars will be the brightest in the night sky starting August. It will look as large as the full moon to the naked eye. This will cultivate on Aug. 27 when Mars comes within 34.65M miles off earth. Be sure to watch the sky on Aug. 27 12:30 am. It will look like the earth has 2 moons.
The next time Mars may come this close is in 2287.

Till next time, keep looking up.

Rainbow Tipped Clouds.

This is an interesting picture of clouds..The sun was to the left and the clouds, because of moisture gave a little rainbow. Isn't it beautiful? So much beauty to see and so thankful I saw this.

Fingerprint Friday.

Here is a cute Fingerprint..A Robin's nest.

It was blown out of a tree in the back yard and I just happen to find it. What an amazing work of art..No one taught this little bird how to build this nest, yet it knew how to do it, by instinct.
We as humans are giving instinct too..but do we follow it?
This is an interesting thought...

We are starting to get cucumbers and here is a fun recipe I thought I would share for dill pickles.

Years ago my mom was given this recipe from a woman and she called it , 4 Day Pickles..

You pick the pickling cukes small, wash, clip top and bottom off.

Pack in a quart jar, tight. Add crushed garlic/dill or 2TBS dill seed..Add 2TBS salt. Fill jar with warm tap water and put tight cap on..
1st day..jar stands upright
2nd day ..turn jar upside down
3rd day...turn jar upright
4th day they go in the fridge..
That is it..when chilled have a nice dill pickle..
Use the dill/garlic to your taste.
Happy pickling..
Till next time, keep looking up.

Shadow Shot Sunday.

I have missed a few weeks..but family was here and didn't get a chance to blog much.

These shadows are around home again..the garden, the road..did it before, but so pretty worth another shot, and my shed with hanging basket..I am thrilled with the shadow the hanger gave.

Hope all have been having a great summer and fun with shadows..

Check out Hey Harriet's blog for more wonderful shadows.

A little visitor..

This little guy has been around our property for a few days..I do think his mother was probably hit by a car. Usually they never come out during the daytime. He/she was all over the place for a few days. Won't kid you, I was very nervous going out to the garden, since he did run under the shed.
Haven't seen him for awhile, hope he headed to the woods.
Have to admit, skunks are cute looking.
Till next time, keep looking up.
