ALL SEASONS – JULY DELIGHTS

  1. I thought I had commented here before, but it must have got lost in cyber space somehow. Wanted to thank you and to say I understood your grandchild hating blackberries. Not logical of course, but when I get scratched by those thorns, I almost feel the same ))).

    1. Thank you Sharon – we also went to the Santa Barbara harbor, and a neat experience there. Also went to SanDiego Balboa park – the park was nice, but there was a big event in front re-routing traffic, and had to pay a ton to park.

  3. Was thinking I hadn’t seen your posts in a while, but saw your link on Tamar’s blog. Nice to see you’re still doing All Seasons. Great pictures, and really great paintings. I’m envious as I craft, but no talent to paint.

    1. Peabea! For some reason I thought you stopped with Pictoral Tuesday! Went to your wordoress blog, and the image you have there, referred to October 2018 at your blogspot blog – so I am confused. Are you still doing Pictoral Tuesday, or not?
      I would like continue, when you do, so let me know, please.
      Yep, am still doing All Seasons – so if you like to contribute (link is now open from Sunday to Fri noon), you are very welcome!

  5. Baaa, oh wait, that’s sheep. Hmmm, what does a goat say? Right, bleeet, bleet. Glad to hear you had a great week away. Santa Barbara to Solvang to Yosemite, all lovely places to hang out anytime of the year. Summer isn’t summer without a taste of watermelon and cantaloupe. Ice cream, yum.

  6. Solvang, great place. Flowers are incredible, but late this year, as we had so much rain.
    Love blackberries but like any fresh berries.

  7. Gotta love kids logic! The blooming flowers are so pretty! Hope you had a wonderful week of traveling. I used to pick blackberries every summer when I lived in Oregon. I don’t think they grow here on the east coast-at least I have never seen any bushes. Have a great week.

  8. Welcome home! Sounds like a great getaway for both of you! …. I realize it’s not logical, but I can’t blame your grandchild for being mad at blackberries! That fall must have really hurt — I get mad at them too and all I’ve done is scratch my arms and ankles while picking ! We love summer berries — have been blueberry picking at our daughter’s … those bushes re easier!!

  9. Beautiful home and flowers as well as a cute kid (almost said goatee!). My favorite fruit is mango. Never really had tasted it until a small-ship cruise to Central America. After moving to Florida we planted two mango trees and had such large crops that we had to give away hundreds after freezing a bunch and pigging out on them for two weeks.

  10. Blueberries and blackberries are my favourite. I have three blueberry plants but the resident robins are getting all the berries. Blackberries grow wild here. I’ll pick as many as I want in August to make jam and can them whole. They are a bit seedy but such a treat to have in the winter. When we used to live in California it was fun to fly our plane to Solvang. They used to have a fleet of old Chevys you could use for free to drive into town to eat. I flew there on one of my cross country solos before I got my license. I had to find someone to help me push the plane back to tie it down. – Margy
