This will be short. I have already fallen asleep here at the desk, but the rain woke me up. Not a lot happening today. Chuck is on the Detroit run this week, which means he drives at night, home during the day. After our late breakfast, I went out to Grandpa's to pick some green beans. So far, it's the only thing ready. I got 2 one-gallon ice cream buckets full. I was picking fast because a thunderstorm was rolling in fast from the west. I got caught in it, but fortunately it was mostly wind. The rain hit harder after I finished. This is what I got out of it. I used some of them for dinner. I cooked some black-eyed peas then added some green beans to it. It is really good that way. Also fixed white rice and Shake & Bake chicken. Turned out pretty good!
This is yet another hibiscus in my next door neighbor's yard. He has 2 white hibiscus and 1 purple one. They are very pretty. There were only 3 blossoms on the purple, so it was hard to get a nice shot.
I really like the white hibiscus. These 2 bushes are the only white hibiscus I have ever seen that don't have the yellow center. They are solid white, as the purple one is solid purple, without the red center.
This is just a weed. It is called Queen Ann's Lace. I darkened it, then over contrasted it for this effect. I know, I get bored easily! LOL
Personally, I'm getting tired of the tiger lillies, but when I rarely venture out of the yard, not a lot of variety! Gonna get off here before I fall asleep again! Hopefully I will see you tomorrow.
