If you were a morning glory flower on my fence today, this is how the Saturday Sky would look to you!
I am always amazed... just AMAZED at how something so stunningly beautiful and breathtaking as a morning glory flower can come from such a scrawny pathetic near-dead looking vine like they do. And the twisting and climbing and sneaking that those vines do just to find a place to hang on. I created a little lattice of sisal twine on the outside of our fence but some of these vines with flowers are draped and hung over the top and between the boards and have flowers on the inside of the fence as well. It's cool. And I'm so happy that they grew for me this year. It's very good timing with the cooler weather because they aren't dead by 9:00am - these flowers are beautiful all day long and then finally wither and turn into something that resembles a deflated purple balloon.
AND..... ::drum roll::..... If you were a jar of pear ginger jam on my fence, this is how the sky would look to you today!
THANKS for the link to that recipe Norma!! I cut back on the amount of ginger (unlike Norma) and it's got the perfect amount of gingery flavor to add something different yet it's not overpowering. It's FANTASTIC! And guess what y'all. I've got a TON of pears. We got 8 half pint jars of this out of the first recipe last night. I'm going to wait a few days to see how it tastes but there's a very good chance I'll be making this available. Cause I can't let the pears go to waste and this jam is YUM. I'll also be trying out a recipe for Pear Vanilla Jam. NUMMY! :)
So have a great rest of your weekend and as Sandy says, Look up at the sky! :)
