Sweet Corn

Fresh sweet corn is the best and it's always something we look forward to this time of year. I don't have enough room to grow my own but there's lots and lots of it available at the Farmers Market. It likes to grow in really hot conditions so I guess there will be good supply in the coming weeks.

It takes a little bit of extra work to get it ready to eat but it's totally worth it.

You could say, right now . . .  corn is king . . .

and the only way to beat a king is to Trump it!

(Talk about having a head of silky hair.)

Long live the Corn King! At least until dinner time.

That was a short but tasty reign, poor Burt's going to need a new scepter!

As these hot days give way to cooler (ok, less hot) nights, we look forward to the evenings.
It hasn't rained for awhile so we can actually sit outside without being devoured by mosquitos!

Of course night is the perfect time for a little spookiness . . .

. . . and we can't forget the madness!

So as the Blue Moon or Green Corn Moon or possibly the Blueberry Moon peeks through the trees,

it's time to relax, enjoy the evening and not think about all that sweet corn we just ate!

So glad you could stop in for a visit. Hope everyone is staying cool!

Thanks to the genius behind #TrumpYourCat for a good laugh and great inspiration!

My two kitties are hard core liberals and refused to participate in anything to do with insane conservative politicians. Burt, on the other hand doesn't follow politics or Twitter, and was unaware of any connection between a certain infamous presidential candidate and his own corn silk hair.
We should probably keep it that way.


  1. Oh, how absolutely fabulous, my Dear!! Loved each and every photo!
    Hope you continue to have a delightful weekend!

  2. How yummy everything looks...especially Burt by Moonlight :D XXX

    1. The moonlight does seem to suit him better than the green hair!

    1. It has been so hot here lately that the only time we go outside is after dark. I'll have to remember that next January!
