Colors On Monday-Green

Once again it's time for Colors on Monday hosted by Jen at Unglazed. If you want to play along just click on the link on my side bar. Today's color is green!One of my favorite herbs is cilantro. I think most people either love it or hate it, there is no in-between. Since hubbie and I love salsa I enjoy making it almost as much as eating it. Here's my easy recipe.

1 lg. can of crushed tomatoes or you can use chopped fresh

Juice of 1 lime

Medium chopped onion

Chopped cilantro-use as much as you like

Chopped fresh jalapeno peppers-I use 2-3. If you scrape out the seed and the white membrane they won't be as hot.

Salt to taste. Sometimes I have been known to throw in chilli powder or accent.

After mixing it all up I let it refrigerate for a couple of hours.

We love it and I hope if you try it, you will too.

Happy Green Monday to you!

Colors on Monday-Yellow

It's time once again for Colors on Monday hosted by Jen at Unglazed. To participate click on Colors on Monday icon on my side bar.Care to guess? This is an upclose pic of a squash bloom. I wish I could tell you the squash did wonderful but I'd be lying if I did. I guess you could say the squash borers enjoyed it more than I.Rudbeckias are one of the easiest plants to grow. This particular one is Rudbeckia maxima. It grew to be about 7 feet tall. They can make a neat attraction to your flower bed.During our vacation in northern Arkansas we took a hike down by the Buffalo River. I can't resist stopping to take pics of wildflowers.

Hope you enjoyed my yellow pics and I hope everyone has a great YELLOW Monday!

Colors on Monday-Orange you glad it's Monday?

If you haven't guessed yet, today's color is orange. If you want to join in this meme just click on my Colors on Monday sidebar.
This is the first year I have planted Cosmos in my flower bed. I grew this baby from seed and am so happy I did. Most of the time you see pink/rose and white cosmos. This one is a little more orange than it shows in the pic.

Hope everyone has a great Monday and I look forward to seeing other "orange" pics.
