Another summer month has come and gone. When I took the above photo near the beginning of July, I was thrilled at the thought that one little tomato was beginning to ripen. Now the vines are hanging full and it’s time to think about making salsa.
Not even the best clothing label imaginable could save Jenny Burns Menswear, which was open from 1976 to 1988. Note the driver’s nautical striped shirt!
The woods behind our house have a healthy crop of trumpet vine.
Poor me, forced to lie around with a book all day.
But the stir crazies set in eventually, and so we headed down to South Carolina to peach country. Peaches are one of the true delights of summer.
This is Kallie, the neighbor’s rescue. Actually I should say one of the neighbor’s rescues, as they have three. Kallie loves to herd, as the two horses at her farm will tell you.
This is the Basilica of Saint Lawrence in Asheville. It was designed by Rafael Guastavino [shortly before he died in 1908], and features a spectacular tiled dome.
The Scottie of the month is on one of my travel themed novelty print skirts. How about that fringed roof and the button axles?
I keep buying orchids, though I’ve had zero success with them. I feel like a serial killer.
This is Lake Junaluska, a nearby lake where people from the community gather to walk and relax.
And that is it for July.
