Tuesday Tidbits #138 A U G U S T

It’s August!

Cool mornings and cool nights!

At least for us here in Pennsylvania.

I enjoy the hydrangeas on cool early mornings when front porch sitting.
And back patio fires in the evenings.
With s’mores of course!

Produce Goodness

With August comes an abundance of produce from farm stands! So I’m always trying new ways to enjoy the local produce.

Italian Bread drizzled with olive oil and layered with mozzarella, tomatoes and Basil.
Or you just throw together the old familiar recipes. Summer Squash fritters, sweet corn and fresh beets. Country cooking at its best.
There’s always room for dessert! Farm stand peaches found their way into a homemade peach pie! It was delicious!

Potting Bench as a Buffet

The peppermint has taken over some of our gardens. I may have to do battle with it. But before I do… why not make Mint Juleps and enjoy a date night out on the back patio!

I enjoyed using my Mother’s vintage green glasses for our Mint Juleps.
I love this potting bench sweet man built for me!
Date Night!
Candle Glow

Feature Creatures

On our back patio we have been enjoying a nightly visit from our hummingbird friend and his buddy the hummingbird moth.

August Bouquets

We have lots of cutting gardens so the bouquets are constantly appearing in our home or outside.

Concerts Again

We were lucky to have a Concert rescheduled from last year. It was called the Happy Together Tour. A wonderful evening of many bands from the late 60’s/early 70’s.

The Vogues, The Association, The Cowsills, Gary Puckett from the Union Gap and The Turtles.
So Happy Together by the Turtles!

Reunion Time

My High School reunion … year 45… took place. What fun to see so many friends from the past. Not one of us looked a day over 18! 🤣

A ride into Cleveland, Ohio to see friends and family always makes my heart full. It’s a short two hours to Cleveland from the LakeHouse. How do they sing it…? “Reunited and it feels so good…!”

Another Weeks Flies By

That’s it for this week here at Two Trails One Road. I hope that you are able to get out and enjoy the dog days of August and make each day fun and relaxing too!

We always appreciate your visits!
