Welcome to True Colours Thursday.
True Colours Thursday is the brainchild
of Miss Blue.
Should you wish to play along,
just leave a comment on her blog
and you're in - it's that simple.
The colour for today is RASPBERRY.
Our Mom grew up on the "Florida vacation".
It was such a delight to leave
the cold mountains of Virginia in February
and go to the warm sunny shores of Miami Beach.
and the Simple Simon weather vane
of Howard Johnson's Restaurants.
(in fact she would love to purchase one-
if you could point her in the right direction,
email us at rocky creek scotties at yahoo.com)
that she could have one of her favorite treats -
But today, even though she still loves the sherbet,
her raspberries come in different forms.
And we know that some of these colours
aren't what you think of when you think
of the colour, raspberry.
that are ever-bearing.
They have green berries on them now,
but once they start to ripen,
they will bear delicious golden fruit
until the first frost.
that were started by Mom's grandmother
over 100 years ago.
They usually bear in mid-June -
and make delicious preserves.
sitting on a RASPBERRY coloured bench
in the hotel room they stayed in on their
trip to take Miss Becky to her furrever home.
Have a wonderful day.
