Today we grilled on my dad's grill that he got for Father's Day.
He also got a snow cone maker. With a little patience, it works rather well.
Bubby Brister was in town for a football camp.

Here is the small water snake in the shrinking pond. He has been gorging on fish in the evenings.
Congratulations to the LSU Tigers on their sixth baseball championship.

No More #2

The Columbus Zoo has been named the #1 Zoo in America. Check out the commercial. Mr. Water Snake shed his skin Tuesday evening and left it in the garden. He is 46" long. The normal length for this species is 30-48" long.

Lazy Sunday

While walking out to the pond we saw Mr. Water Snake in the garden. We continued on to the pond to turtle watch and 15 minutes later he was in the pond. He swam around for awhile and then disappeared.

Southern Hospitality

Southern Hospitality is a new Blue Bell flavor. It has pineapple, pecans, and a strawberry swirl.

LSU is headed back to Omaha.
Birthday Cake is my favorite Blue Bell flavor.
We picked blueberries yesterday at a neighbor's house. It takes a long time to pick them.

We harvested all the carrots today.Since all the early spring vegetables have been harvested (onions, peas, potatoes, and carrots), we planted okra and purple hull pea seeds in the empty rows.
