Summer's Nearing the End

We had a hot and dry summer. I took advantage of the heat to dry nearly every load of clothes outside. My power bill was about $150 less this month. Not using the electric dryer saves $$.

A nice old man across the way told my son Garrett that we could pick the fruit from his trees. They look like big cherries, but they taste like plums. Yum! His mother lived in the home all her life. The house is over a 100 years old. I love this statue.  Garrett wants to plant the seeds. The yellow ones he is calling "Plerries," and the red ones, "Chums."I looked up the way to plant them, and they must be grafted. We will do more research and let you know.
                                              Psalm 1:3
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper."
Blessings, Kathi

I love all of these photos! What a fun time you had with Garrett! It's neat to hear that you really did save money by hanging your clothes to dry. I might try that next year. I love you dear sister!

I hope the seeds grow for him :)

Your mother in law is beautiful! Loved seeing those pictures of her.
