I like the smaller cucumbers for their crispness…

Peel them and run a fork down them lengthwise…

My Mama’s trick to make them look pretty!…

and this slices of sweet onion…

Mom used to mix together vinegar… sugar… water… salt/pepper for dressing…

but, I use this House Dressing which my family likes and it’s simple like me!

We also bought new potatoes and fresh green beans…

I found this Hummingbird feeder at a yard sale still in package…

I hung it outside my kitchen window… after I made sugar water with red food coloring… to put in it…

Hopefully I’ll catch one of the Hummingbirds drinking this sweet concoction!…

The first photo is outside.. .and the rest are views from inside…

My little Angel Girl who sits near our back steps… is a little faded… but, I kinda like her that way!…

I love the “hairy” stem of my tomato plant and the yellow blooms tells me tomatoes will come soon!
