September and Hummingbirds

 September is the peak time for the backyard to turn into a buzzing cloud of Rubythroat hummingbirds  as they gather at the feeders preparing for their southbound migration. It is fascinating to watch these brilliant precision-flying tiny creatures glitter like jewels in the full sun as the congregate at the feeders.
It is Hummingbirds penchant to return to a favorite feeding area, year after year.
I will enjoy these captivating little jewels as long as they hang around, come first of October the tiny little birds will be heading south.

I have"four" feeders setup off the patio, and it has become a full-time job trying to keep them full. The feeders are filled twice sometimes three times a day. Each day two pitchers of sugar water are made up ready to use.

Beautiful,stylish Fanny Packs are on the Comeback!

The Fanny Pack is making a Comeback with Color and Style!

Why be weighted down, carrying a Large. cumbersome bag, when you can be hands free and still carry all your essentials?
The fanny pack was an accessory that seems to be valued more for its functionality than its fashion relevance, but now it is stylish and can be fashionable to complete any outfit for Men and Women.

The elusive fanny pack goes by several different names, such as belt pack, hip sack, hip pack and bum bag. 

A Little History on Fanny Packs
The name "fanny pack" is derived from the fact that they were traditionally worn facing the rear above the buttocks, for which "fanny" is a slang term in the United States.
Fanny packs reached the peak of their popularity in the late 1980's and early-to-mid 1990's with the term entering common North American usage by early 1980's.
The fanny pack in the past was a sure mark of an out-of-place, tourist evoking the traditional tourist stereotypes known around the world, or regard them as an item worn by unfashionable or  "Old People."


Countless ideas for carrying a Fanny Pack!  Hiking, Jogging, Bingo Night, Casino, Concerts, Ballgames, Shopping, Garage Selling, Sight Seeing.

How or when would you use a Fanny Pack ? Let me Know !

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
~ Abraham Lincoln

July the 4th Independence Day…The signing of Declaration of Independence for our great Nation.

Each year Americans around the Country celebrate the birth of this great Nation and commemorate those who fought for our freedom. It’s a time to be thankful for our country, celebrate with backyard barbecues, fireworks, and outdoor fun with friends and family.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

My Secret Garden #2

I am a country Girl born and raised in Texas…No other place like Texas!

Country life is slow and peaceful …No! No!… it was not always that way…. After 25 + years working in the Banking Industry and raising two Children, without me pulling my hair out and theirs as well!! who by the way have become respectful, successful adults; that I am so Proud of. I have had my days of stress.

Retirement is a gift from God. Believe me I am so blessed to me able to sit in my rocker on my deck …

Yep !! You Got It …when my gaze collides with My Secret Garden, here is where I lose track of the world. Sipping the elixir of sweet red wine from a Stemless wine glass. Enjoying the cool Country Summer breeze, gently stirring a graceful melody form the Westminster Chimes suspended from the eaves of the deck ……Along with American Flag Swaying to the rhythm of the wind.

Tranquilly - Peace- Serenity~~~~ doesn’t take much to make me happy ~~~I’m just a country Girl !!! ♫♫ So Blessed !

My Secret Garden

Oh My, the Moon Plants are showing out again this year!! ~~~In my Secret Garden~~~~

Datura Inoxia Moon or Moon Plants.

Very easy to grow and produces blossoms from sunset until about 10 o'clock every morning. The flowers have a light spicy fragrance. The Flowers are very large and snow white in color.
Moon flowers are self-seeding, when their blooms die to produce new plants for the next growing cycle, they produce a pod that is full of seeds and will open when dried. This is when I pick the seeds and save for the coming spring to give to friends and family. The fragrance is so lovely, if only I could bottle it.!!
