Yummmm. . . My sister brought back some peaches from South Carolina so I froze a few bags and made five jars of delicious jam using my Mamaw Minnie's recipe. Earlier, me and my boys had picked blackberries that grow along our driveway. I love blackberries but hate the seeds so I used my Mamaw Nell's recipe for the blackberry jelly which was passed on only to me. It is wonderful, if I may say so! Biscuits, anyone?

I took this picture of these Gladiolas that are growing at the corner of our porch. I absolutely love these and I especially love the color! I've tried to grow these before, but I have NEVER had any luck; I've never been known for a green thumb.
But on a very sad note, my precious Great-Aunt Gladys went home to be with the Lord this week. When I saw her in the hospital, I told her that I loved her, and I kissed her little forehead; I brushed her hair back from her face and relived memories from better times. I didn't want to cry, but of course, I did. As I was leaving with my Mom, I whispered to her, "I love you, Aunt Gladiola." I don't know if anyone else but me called her this but it was a fitting nickname for her. She was a special one of a kind gal just like Gladiolas and I will miss her so much. Love you, Glad.
