Monday afternoon after a lunch of leftover applewood smoked chicken from the night before, potato salad, local sweet fresh clams and oysters on the half shell, corn on the cob and ice tea, two of our guests took naps in loungers under the star magnolia, three went shopping at Trimble's Nursery for plants to take home, Zack and Kenny went downstairs to play video games and I took a walk. I went along side the orchard a half mile and back looking and taking pictures of flowers at the edge of neighboring folks backyards. There is so much beauty there that can't be seen from the road. The sun was warming, not hot, and the flowers smiled.
