Pumpkin Season- Guest Blog

This afternoon my daughter Laura sent me some photos of their family outing to Franklin Park Conservatory. It looked like so much fun, I wish I’d been there too. Seeing the photos of Charlie enjoying the Pumpkin House made me smile. Thanks Laura.

Brushstroke Clouds

Brushstroke fingers of clouds. Last evening in Berlin, I was walking to Kiez Eis to pick up special order of a pint of vanilla ice cream to accompany our dessert. My farewell dinner. Here’s what I saw at the end of the street. Like a hand of brushstrokes- clouds in the sky.

Two different street views of the fingers of clouds.

Which Would You Choose?

Today was a hot summer day.

Which flavor would you choose?

I chose Salted Butter Caramel in a handmade cone.

I thought it interesting that all the flavors were written in English.

So Long Ohio

Charlie’s face says it all. Again. Maura is my guest blogger today. Friday morning she took this photo with my phone as we backed into the driveway, saying so long to cousin Charlie. I drove Maura back to her house and then I left for Pittsburgh. We had a nice time together and it’s always hard to say goodbye.

Pick a Peck of Purple Peppers

Pick a peck of purple peppers. James is growing these in a pot, out front on the steps. Don’t think there will enough for a peck, though. They are such a beautiful color. Not sure about their heat factor either. I’d never seen purple peppers before.
