ALL SEASONS – JULY DELIGHTS

    Hello All Seasons Bloggers,
This week the link is open from Sunday Junly 21 through Friday July 26 noon, Pacific time.

Your links two seeks ago were excellent! This is the first time in three years that we skipped a week of All Seasons!
So, am expectant and excited to see what you have experienced, or what you have been up to!

As you may remember, I was a participant of an art show n Laguna Niguel. Was much fun and got to know some new artists! Since it is an area easy to get to Santa Barbara, Solvang, Pasadena, we went there in between. On the way back home we spent to Yosemite Nat. Park, so I could paint plein air, and hubby could hike. You will eventually see some of these sights in my coming blog posts.

My Midsummernight’s Dream – a scoop of Spumoni.
Love the pistachio in it. Only one scoop? Yes, because
next night I’ll have Cookies and Creme (ice cream).
You know where this is going … every hot summer
night I’ll have ice cream – one scoop to keep
something like a waist:).

 

One of the flowers in several yards here, because
these are one of the few  which are  deer resistant
(meaning, deer don’t eat them).

 

This year it is much dryer. All the flowers
had a very short blooming period.
The first one were already wilted, before others
started blooming. Many buds did not develop.
Also many less flowers than the year before.

 

 

Two baby goats my daughter and family bought not too long
ago for their family farm. The grands called them
Lego and Lega. Isn’t this one cute? One of the reasons
– they eat poison oak.  I told my daughter,
I’ll be picking up goat cheese in a while:)

 

 

The logic of a child. “I’ll never eat blackberries (?) anymore!”
“Why not?”
“I fell into the bush and it hurt!”

What is your favorite summer fruit?
Mine is Mango or Cantaloupe

    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 ))).

      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.

    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.

      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!

  6. 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.

    My fave Summer fruit would have to be a ripe, fragrant, sweet and juicy white peach…

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

  11. 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.

  13. 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!!

    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.

    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
