summer to me means golden shades of buttery flowers , so the day lily that blooms near our front door the" Stella de Oro" is definitely one of them. this morning the 3 states of a flower captured my attention as i went to feed my chickens , this is what saw.
yesterdays faded blossom,
today glorious bloom ,
and the promise of tomorrows bud....
whats blooming in the garden near you?

growing a pineapple

growing a pineapple from the top of a purchased one is a slow but sweet process. i can't remember how long this one took but it was a tiny, the size of my hand when it began to turn that golden color at base. and when i sliced it up i had the sweetest pineapple ever. one serving and i ate it very slowly!
