"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Signs of Summer

Though Summer doesn’t officially arrive for another ten days or so, the signs of it’s arrival are all around us.  The day lilies are blooming in flower beds, and along the roadsides. 

The Blueberries are beginning to ripen, which in turn calls for pancakes for breakfast, and blueberry pound cake with vanilla ice cream for a late evening snack.

It’s fascinating to see how much they plump up as they ripen.  The fully ripe ones are the size of a dime.

And then, there’s the road side vendors along the way.  I admit I didn’t take this picture.  Borrowed it from a friend who posted it on Facebook.  It’s one of the best examples of “Summer in the South” you’ll find anywhere.

Deep south

Hope you can read it.  It’s perfectly clear to me…..jc


  1. Lol. Don't need a translation, but could use some of those blueberry pancakes!

  2. Just can't figure out purpul-hurl peas?? :)

  3. How I envy the berries, and matters and tatters too. Barely feeling like winter's letting go at the North Rim.

  4. This southern girl didn't need a translation--and my mouth is watering!

  5. It feels like summer is here!

    Great idea...blueberry pound cake and ice cream!

  6. Love the Veggie advertisement photo.. :) Blueberries remind me of the service berries at Glacier...with cereal and milk....Take care my friend...currently bedded down in Ruston La...home tomorrow...Horst sends
