At this time of the year yellow seems to be the predominant colour. There's corn of course. At least once a summer we like to make a meal of just corn-on-the-cob and that is exactly what we did today. How do you cook your corn? We microwave ours one cob at a time for 4 to 5 minutes, depending on the size of the cob. After cooking we cut the end off the cob right through the husk and pull the end off. Ideally it brings all the corn silk with it. This method would be too long if you were cooking for a family, of course, but works well for the two of us.
Brown-eyed Susans are at their best now. Mine have self-sown a lot and will need some thinning out next Spring.
Gold Finches have been coming to the bird bath lately. Because of the dryness we've also had a Nuthatch coming. He's not yellow but deserves a mention because we don't see him often.
The hot weather has made me very lazy and uninspired when it comes to blogging. Thanks for coming by faithfully. I hope to do a better post next time!
