It is hot and humid here again today, but all in all, we have had a very nice August. I can't remember another August where it was in the 80's all month! Well almost all month!
Not much to post about. The herb garden, started much too late in the season, is trying to grow. Certainly nothing to brag about...
The tiny patch of basil needs to be thinned. The parsley is just coming through the ground, and that's mustard on the left...just happened to have a pack of mustard seed. :) I do love this dragonfly that hangs around the herb garden...
Daddy used to call dragonflies, "snake doctors". Poppy laughed when I called one a snake doctor. Wikipedia says, "The Southern United States term "Snake Doctor" refers to a folk belief that dragonflies follow snakes around and stitch them back together if they are injured". So, they are called "Snake Doctors"! Turns out I'm right, for a change!!!
Tuesday, I spent the day with Shelby...my sister, the farmer. Shelby had been wanting me to meet a friend of her's and see her amazing yard full of flowers. So, that's what we did. First let me show you a tree in her friend's yard...a black walnut tree. This tree is 300 years old and the second largest black walnut tree in North Carolina.
