Rainy Night in Georgia

With all the rain we've been getting, pottery to replenish my supplies is drying slowly. We've reverted back to opening our windows at night and closing them during the day to save on our air conditioning bill since it's been cooler. However, the humid air doesn't encourage the clay to dry quickly. Meanwhile I've been working on a couple of other locations to carry my pottery. More about that later.

If you don't know Brook Benton have a listen to a few more of his such as "It's just a Matter of Time", "The Boll Weevil Song", "Lie to Me", "Hotel Happiness". and "Think Twice". Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

Scallops with Blueberry Sauce

Remember this recipe from two years ago, Scallops with Blueberry Sauce? I definitely never forgot it. Scallops are so expensive but the cost is much less than if we both went out to dinner. Last week I decided to splurge on some scallops for a combination birthday and anniversary dinner. Serve them over a bed of mixed greens, romaine, or spinach.  The warm blueberry sauce makes a slightly wilted salad. So delicious; perfect for a summer treat. If you have leftover blueberry sauce you can use the sauce on pancakes, crepes, or blintzes. Follow the link above to find the recipe. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

New Blooms

 First hardy gardenia blooms of the season.
Their fragrance permeates the humid air.

 I had no idea there were hardy gardenias till I moved here.
They have a narrower leaf than the not so hardy ones.

 Gladiolas I planted last year are blooming.
Last year they just produced leaves.

In all these years this is the first time I've grown gladiolas.
This was a mixed group, can't wait to see what colors the others are.
