June

Going through a difficult time a few years back, I remember looking out an upper church window and seeing crepe myrtles in bloom. I thought, “How can it be June already?” Time had stood still, during that dark period. Wrapped up in my troubles, I lost track of the days. The frilly, periwinkle pink blooms snapped me into my then present.

Five Junes have come and gone. Crepe myrtles start to bloom now and last through August. With them come a reminder of getting through a tough transition and also the gift of a beautiful future.

Here are some pics from my evening stroll through Magnolia, Mississippi. The park in the old depot yard is serene and harkens to days gone by.  Enjoy your walk on the quiet streets of Small-town, USA. Try to hear the mockingbirds singing their various trills,  the cars passing on Hwy 51, children’s voices calling out in a game of chase outside the barber shop.

Blessings.

Blueberry Jam

We picked blueberries this week. Brentlee ate just as many as he dropped in the bag.  The jam pot was full. And so is the freezer. June is a busy month for harvesting fresh produce. I hope you have an opportunity to get your fill of the goodness.

Meet Marigold. She’s good company in the kitchen. We jammed to David Gray, while we made blueberry jam.
