I didn't realize that today was peanut day.  Did you?  Well let's see, have any of you ever drank a bottle of Coke or Pepsi with peanuts in it?  You must try it but please find a glass bottle coke to do this with.  Guess it will have to be the small coke...That is the best for the sweet and salty tastes together.
I enjoyed this treat in high school especially.  We would go to canteen the highlight of the day.  Socialize eat and drink your snack because you were finally old enough to go to the Canteen!
I found out a few interesting facts about peanuts, so come on along with me.

 The Little Crapemyrtles love the addition of pine straw

Spotlight Story: These People Are Amazing!




You know there are people who stand out among others and I've been so blessed to get to know them.  People that are so interesting, caring, and outgoing.  The list goes on and on.  
These two ladies are prime examples of that.  Both are so fun loving and enjoy life to the fullest.  They have never, as we say in the south, "Let the dust settle around them!"  Active is one very big word to describe Kathryn and Kim.

Little Herb Garden That Could

 I have to admit that here at Hibiscus House herbs haven't thrived.  For years I've tried to grow them without any surviving.  This year I decided to put some in the porch rail boxes and line the back doorsteps with some.
Yes!  Finally I've had a kitchen herb garden within my reach for making all sorts of delicious dishes.  I didn't realize it would be a home to all of these ...

Behind the Scenes Gardening

Bloggers seldom want to air their dirty laundry in public.  Well, actually nobody does.  There are good reasons for doing that.  People don't want to see a mess.  They want to believe that people can actually do it all!  
I confess and those that know me personally already know this.  I have so many interests that I have never narrowed them down to perfect just a few....therefore a mess in some areas at any given time.
Today I share my neglected flower bed.  Shameful really because now this particular bed is blooming in full.  It should be shown for all of it's glory but can't.  Why?  Grass! It is covering this bed.
