Week 38 Thursday (10/2/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Grilled Nectarine Salad
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         Did you know that the nectarine originated in China? It is a member of the peach family. Today’s nectarines are larger and deeper in color than the original ones.
         The nectarine is a really healthy food choice. One medium nectarine is only 59 calories and contains a lot of Vitamin C. So when you need a quick, healthy, snack. Choose the nectarine.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden
Liatris “Alba” spicata white

       Liatris are a beautiful tall spiky flower that add a new texture to the gardens. This type are a beautiful white. The butterflies are always around this bed for this plant and the orange butterfly plant. I did cut some for a vase this summer and really enjoyed the look they added to the arrangement.
         The tag says:
         They are called gayfeather, blazing star
         Mine are tall about 3 – 4 feet (mine are 3.5 ft.
         I have them in a full sun garden bed and they love it.
         They bloomed at the very end of June through August.
         I placed mine somewhere between 12 – 18 inches apart.
         They have spread nicely through the bed.

Here is the purple version - I forgot to take a picture of the white ones. 
They are tall and willowy

Irksome Ideas and Images

         I hate spam as much as I hate junk mail. Of course, spam is just virtual junk mail.  OMG – I love that expression. Cleaning off my two email accounts is a pain, but I like when I have less than six entries. I file the ones that I need to keep and trash the rest. It takes a while to do this since I have a home and school account but remember – A cluttered email is a cluttered mind.  I just made that up.
