Here is a view from where I sit. You can see the grill where Doug cooks our wings, fish, burgers and kebabs. Straight out are numerous azaleas, the pink one in full bloom this particular day. The old swing set our son enjoyed as a child has been re-purposed as a bird feeding station. To the left of that is our utility shed, not in the photo.
Sometime in the past few weeks I must have shot a hole through our shed. I’m a great aim, LOL.
When you want to attract birds you also get unwanted vermin who steal the seed at every opportunity. This is why there is a hole in the shed. Shooting vermin on an almost daily basis resulted in collateral damage to the shed but fortunately nothing inside was damaged. I guess.
Speaking of grilling ......Recently Doug grilled these fabulous burgers. Nothing like good quality meat and fresh ingredients. I cut up fresh corn from the cob and served bourbon baked beans.
Have you ever been walking, in your neighborhood, park or campground, and the scent of a charcoal fire hits you? That is one of the most wonderful aromas ever, in my humble opinion. Gas grills are quicker but the taste of anything cooked over a charcoal fire is absolutely amazing. And delicious.
Here is a blurry snap of the cheeseburger. Wish it had been clear but I was probably in a hurry to tuck into this juicy burger.
While I am showing off the yard, check out these willowy shrimp plants we put in. This bee stayed the night attached to the flower and had to wait for the air to warm the next day before it could fly away. In fact, there were several bees attached to the shrimp plant blossoms. Not being one to court a sting I didn’t get too awfully close.
That’s my garden & porch wool gathering for today.
