  1. I love your photos especially the freshly picked walnuts. I used to pick them in Italy as a child. They are so good when they are homegrown!

    1. Thanks Alida. Walnuts are a lot of work to clean and prepare but I've heard they are definitely worth all the work. Hopefully, I will feel really ambitious one day and give them a try.

  4. Dear Louise, I love to see your Wordless Wednesdays. Your photos are so beautiful and full of colors. I also enjoyed seeing the fresh picked walnuts. You would never believe that they come from that outside shell. Thanks for sharing..Blessings, Dottie :).

    1. Thank you Dottie. I've been enjoying Wordless Wednesdays too. I'm glad you and others are also.

      I have grown to appreciate the walnut on a totally different level after picking these. There's a huge amount of work involved with cleaning them and curing them. Unbelievable!

  5. Your garden is so beautiful. My mother in law had a black walnut tree. Created my favorite cake in the world.
    Great photos, xoGinger

    1. Neither, Linda:) Yes that is a Dahlia. It took forever to open but it sure was worth it! Let me know when that pasta post is done and I will help you if you need to figure it out.

  8. Oh, I love your rose. Our colors are just starting here, too, but I had to honor Dictionary Day, mentioned in your last post, for this Wordless Wednesday. Hope you survived the soakings last week; Cass in Harrisburg said the hospital called her in for 3 extra shifts because others couldn't get through the water!

    1. We missed that soaking Marjie. It doesn't surprise me about Cass. I heard Harrisburg was inundated with rain and floods. Thanks for the shout out for Dictionary Day. You sure do have a lot of dictionaries, lol...

  11. You know my daughter and I encountered black walnuts in their husks all over the ground on a walk Monday and had to go to the Internet to figure out what they were! Your yard is so beautiful still!

    1. Black walnuts are a ton of work to clean and shell, Inger. The dye is wicked and very difficult to get off. Black walnuts need their own space to grow also. They can be toxic to other plants as well as the flower and vegetable garden. I was warned NOT to put the shells in the compost pile!

  12. Dear Louise, Such beautiful pictures. I am fascinated with the fresh walnuts! Blessings dear and always in my prayers. Catherine xo

    1. Ever since I moved to PA I've been wanting to get my hands on some walnuts, Catherine. Now that my hands are streaked with walnut dye, I think I would much rather leave the shelling and cleaning up to Diamond! Thank you so much for all your prayers. Michele is on the mend and getting back to her amazing self:)

  13. It's always nice to see the four seasons, unlike living in a tropical country like Singapore; it's greenery all year round. Lol!

    1. Greenery is a good thing too Shirley. Does that mean you don;t have snow either?

  14. I love the flowers in your garden and it's the first time I'm seeing fresh walnuts. Forgot to let you know this post re Korean Bulgogi sauce http://cheah2009.blogspot.com/2013/05/korean-spicy-pork-bulgogi.html

  15. There was a black walnut tree in our neighborhood and my mother made us pick them all up (they are a royal pain to get at the meat) and then she'd make the most divine cake. Also...saw the Two Fat Ladies making something with pickled walnuts. Always wanted to try those. Perhaps you could try that?
