In memory of all the men and women who have given so much of themselves for our freedom. And remembering all that are still doing so.
I'm also focusing on the hope that people everywhere on our planet will have freedom very soon in the future. And that it can be achieved with peaceful action.

|Just a little different angle.|
|Then I noticed how nice and shady and pretty it is over here. This would be a nice sitting area! Shade in the South is a necessity. Now for a little table and two or three chairs... a pitcher of lemonade! Ain't life grand?!|

|Look at these growing almost upright. Wow! I've been gathering recipes for the last few weeks.... looks like now is the time to try them out.|
|In this little pot I found it growing next to spurge. Just like every article I find seems to mention. Wonder why they like each other's company so much? The spurge is on the left as you look at the photo. Its toxic.|
|You can see the white sap that spurge has when you break the stems. |
Purslane does NOT have this!
I'll include some of those recipes with the next purslane post... Have a great day!

|Almost missed this one... it was trying to hide in the pine tree.|

Things have been a bit "off" since the full moon, but I've been reminded that we have some sun spots to deal with. Oh yeah, everything is energy!!!
Its been a good chance to slow down a little and look at things with fresh eyes. Realizing that simplicity is definitely the way to go. Some things in Life are just too nice to let them get complicated. This scrap quilt top is a good example. The floral pieces I had were all so pretty just by themselves! So I cut squares big enough to show off the designs and pieced them together with a soothing solid color. I just LOVE florals! I'd really like to back it with a rose pink brushed cotton or cotton flannel. Like soft flower petals.
Will have to wait till Autumn to get to that though. I need to clear out and simplify my home this Summer. Wish me luck!!!! Ha ha ha

Well, I've been talking about it for quite some time now......
and that hasn't accomplished a darn thing! So these will be the "before" photos of the corner lot. Its small, 50 ft x 140 ft. If I do this right, it'll look extremely different in ten years or so!!! Ha ha Maybe in five. Yeah, lets shoot for five. (The shed in the first photo is NOT on this lot. I said SMALL)
This photo is from the northeast corner, I've all ready started digging up rocks and little palmettos. And those danged SANDSPURS! I have to get a handle on those awful things as soon as possible..... before any more of them actually produce the "spur" part. They are nasty, vicious little plants! And they make life very painful.
So lets see how, with the help of the Nature spirits around here, I can transform this little piece of land over time. I'm envisioning a small shady woodland!

|Aother shot of the trio above. As you can see in the upper left, I use plastic cat carriers minus the doors as mobile nest boxes. Really easy to clean up and disinfect too!|
