All day the rain came and went as a drizzle to a cold rain. The week hasn’t seen the sun and won’t until the first of October. Can’t complain since we’re over 6″ short of normal rainfall.
That doesn’t mean that the horses in the pasture won’t take advantage of a bit of leafy shelter.Holly Springs Rd, Inman, South Carolina 09/27/2015
Never and I mean never let a chance to shop pass you by. Rain isn’t a deterrent. If the item is too much for you to move dragoon the services of some one from the store.
If you have to go out, you can’t come back empty handed!

In the not so distant past, much of of our clothing was made here in America. With the advent of the union push to raise wages, and the low cost labor in the Asian countries and India the mills slowly closed; people lost jobs and towns died. One can travel through North and South Carolina and find towns that are shells of their former glory.

Long ago one crop in the South was king and many places were locations for cotton sales. Times changed and jobs moved on but the buildings remained. Now weathered with rusted metal roofs and faded painted signs proclaiming a past livelihood for businesses that now exist overseas.

Another attractant for hummingbirds is the hibiscus which will grow well in temperate zones. Some specie won’t tolerate frost; others will take a mild freeze.

I’ve been busy traveling back and forth to the hospital. the doctors are going to start chemo once more which just puts the brakes on most activity. It takes much of the strength away. Enough of that.
These are two bougainvillea plants that are in hanging baskets on the deck, one is a variegated leaf and a more orange flower. these are there for the hummingbirds and have attracted many.

Mt. Abe is one of the taller peaks in the Green Mountains and is south of Camel’s Hump. Having this height it gets a full set of seasonal changes and weather changes during the seasons. I’ve made different photos of this peak; this is one of my favorites since it shows most of the western face. Mt Abe seen from West Hill Rd and Brown’s Rd, Lincoln VT, 08/27/2003
