You Might be a Red Neck if.....

...... you have a sign like this in your drive way! You guessed it--it's the youngsters in apt.#2. Nice petunias, though!
I just want to brag about Illinois sweet corn. It's the best stuff you will ever put in your mouth, and I got lucky and found a mom and pop vendor beside CVS Pharmacy yesterday. Good squash, tomatoes, peppers, and corn.
Could this be a magnolia this far north? At first glance I thought it was, and wondered how it could be, so I circled the block, parked in the Edward Jones parking lot so I could go look. It was in their yard, but they were closed so I couldn't ask them about it, and they aren't open at 4:30 am. I will find out even if I have to go to the Extension Service.
This beautiful tree is in Taylorville, Illinois.


  1. Hi Rosie O'Grady! Your blog is very nice. The photographs are very beautiful. Wish you all the best. God is Great.

  2. Thanks Mahmood. God is great, and he is in control no matter how crazy things appear to be. Blessings.

  3. P.S. I stopped at Edward Jones today, and the lady said this is a magnolia, but not the same as the one that grows in the warm south.
