Hydrangeas 2019



I just love these Hydrangea as you know.  I'm amazed at the show they make every year.  You never know what you will have.  They vary so much in size and color from year to year.  This year they were just covered with blooms.  I don't think I've ever seen that many at one time.  The blooms were smaller in size but so beautiful.  I only regret that these photos were taken as they were going down, at the end of their bloom.  Even then, they were gorgeous!

We've been extremely busy with sickness in the family, but thankfully all are healing and on the road to recovery.  Thank you God.

Today's post will be in pictures and a few short videos of the flowers and Hummingbirds.

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler


It's blueberry picking time around here!  Who loves blueberries?  We do!  Whether eating them by the handfuls or baking them into delicious muffins, or pies.  Today I made a fresh blueberry cobbler and let me tell you it is delicious! 

This recipe is extremely simple to make yet so rich and delicious!  Add some vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped topping and you're in for a treat!

Make Your Own Self Rising and Cake Flour


I like King Arthur Flour now.  Over the years, I've used Southern Biscuit and White Lily.  Flours do make the difference in your baked goods. Do you use certain flours when baking, or do you use whatever is available?  It is nearly impossible to find King Arthur in our local groceries, so I've taken to ordering or in a pinch using another brand.  When that brand can be found it is usually all purpose.  What's a lady to do when self rising is needed and you are at home with only all purpose?
