Steamy Summer Mornings
We're in our tenth day of temperatures over 90 degrees, and that delightful Georgia humidity that redefines the meaning of "Big Hair." At 8 o'clock this morning, I broke out in a sweat picking blueberries!
There's been very little rain at home, but the Big House got one of those violent pop-up storms last night that dropped a couple of inches of rain in a very short period. As a result, everything was incredibly lush and refreshed this morning.
The "Chilly Chili" peppers are coming into their glorious summer color....they're great for heat in a recipe, and we use them in a lot of containers, as well, since their color holds until frost, going from ivory to yellow to orange to red.
