The purple cone flowers are beginning to open up. Butterflies like to sip nectar from them, although I can't for the life of me figure out where they get it, since the "cone" is pretty rough.
This is a bed of June lilies, sometimes mistakenly called tiger lilies. They're often seen on the side of a road where, over the years, a road grader has carried a clump away from some old homestead. (I can't for the life of me take good pictures. I suppose it's because I can't see what I'm taking a picture of. :()
These are blueberries, waiting for about a month to pass before ripening. I usually give away as many or more than I keep for ourselves. Wish I could share with you!
Now I can't believe I'm sharing a recipe with you. Recipes are just not my thing! I rarely try a new recipe unless it's something I have eaten, and liked, or know my husband will eat. You may have already tried this; it's quick and easy, cool for a hot day, and satisfies a sweet tooth.
2 small boxes orange Jello
1 large carton cottage cheese, drained
1 large can crushed pineapple
1 large Cool Whip
Mix dry Jello with cottage cheese. Drain pineapple until dry. Mix all ingredients together and chill.
(Other fruits can be substituted, just make sure they're drained completely)
Now I can scrape the mixing bowl and lick the spoon!
