LaMay Car Museum

And guided tour underway. Photo shows just one of the floors.

I like the thought of the cross county trip this car took in the 1960s.

First Garden

I put away some Christmas photos my friend sent me.  Then perused the photos I took with the same friend on a trip to Nashville in 1989.  That led to the photos of our Alabama garden in 1990.
Here is my dad looking serious with his beard and mustache he grew for his last weeks or months before retirement.   He was on a post retirement road trip, including a stop to visit me.   We were watching birds in our back yard.
The Alabama garden in late summer with mostly herbs and flowers remaining.  I didn't photograph the vegetable harvest then.  I discovered I like fresh okra and I remember lots of tomatoes.

It's Time

Ok. Fine. We'll take it down. It is only now loosing needles. Time to plant more. And in 6 or 7 years we'll have a Christmas tree again. For my next sabbatical.

Surprise Treats!

What a surprise to find a package from Japan on my doorstep!  Tea, snacks and three sizes of "cloche clips" or clothes pins to non-gardeners.   Here is a link to show how the clips will be used to hold the plastic on the cloche: 

Thank you for thinking of us and sending this nice surprise!

(I have a related photo from Japan to add later.)
