We need to find meaning. We need to be useful. We need to know that who we are matters. I give, you give, we all give.

I am clueless on this photo. I want to say grape leaf but then it looks too large?
It is, in fact, a large grape leaf. Now you’re ready to move onto the next level in our game show:)
Hahahahhaha!!! I always love the morning photo part of your post. It is always fun to see what lives and grows in your part of the country and all of the many gorgeous scenes from the rural Palouse.

Iam not sure what kind of flower this is, but I love that orange/red color. Is this a late summer bloomer? Have you already had a frost that kills off your summer blooms?
This is a bloom on one of my climbing scarlet runner beans. We’ve had some frost (cucumbers and tomatoes are gone) but we’re still harvesting things like raspberries and apples, and even, roses!
sweetpeas or scarlet runner or ???
Scarlet runner. Good morning Lisa.
TA-Da—-Introducing the 2017 crop of Damson Plums! Farmgirls get your canning equipment ready and tie on your favorite apron. My Mom’s jars of Damson Plum jam were a staple in our home growing up. Rich, sweet, and flavorful, these plums make must have kitchen staple if you are lucky enough to have them locally.
We have our dryers full of them right now. Hubby went on a picking spree this weekend. He has also filled our freezer with raspberries. If you don’t know where Nick is, check the raspberry patch.
Wonderful bounty!! I would be right there helping Nick and snitching raspberries as I picked.
Right now I am having lunch on my porch and enjoying a Courtland apple from Michigan. A local grocery store was having an Apple Fest this weekend and had a lot of new crop apples from up north. These Cortland remind me a bit like Honey Crisp but a tad sweeter and with a tougher skin. Oh, I forgot to tell you, remember my apple friend from Maine that I visited a few years ago? He was doing a big booth at the local Organic Farming fair and exhibition two weekends ago. Their CSA blog that I follow said that he was bringing back his popular 2009 graphic t-shirt that he created for sale at his booth. It was a must have so I wrote him asking if I could buy from him since attending the fair was not possible either. He said yes and even remembered me! I am sending you an email of what it looks like. I wore it for Apple Pie Sunday. Apple happiness!
