I learn a new trick on the computer today. I was looking for a suitable picture of a dragon slayer that was public Domain but only found one  dragon slayer picture on a postal stamp and  so I thought that  instead I'd use my own Dragon Wing Begonia that sits by my front door.  Close enough,  but the slayer is still miles away...... and while I was playing with the photo I even discovered how to type on the picture quite by accident. Now I'll be playing with this some more when I have time but first I have to bake some soft molasses cookies for hubby since it's such a dreary day.

Thanks for coming by and stay warm and dry.



  1. Thanks Kim, I thought that you would appreciate them on such a gloomy day. :)

  2. I would like a nice gloomy day to sit and eat soft molasses cookies. My favorite by the way. Your flowers are enjoying the rain.
    I am looking forward to a nice rainy November if I am lucky. Our rainy season is in February. That is why it is so pretty where you and Kim live and why you have such beautiful Peony bushes. Stay warm.

  3. That is a pretty begonia! Sadly most of my flowers didn't do as well this year so I didn't take pics of them. Hubby assured me he was watering them and when I checked after they were limp and brown they were dry as the desert. So I told him no way had he watered them. He said yes he did - he watered the ones in the back! Ummm - what about the ones in the front. Big silence and then said he forgot about those. :( Oh well, there's always next year right! I hope all is going well with you! You're always so, so busy with the farm and all! Take care!


  4. Love the flowers. I would love to learn how to type over a picture. I could use some new skills.
    soft molasses cookies remind me of my gram oh how tasty that dough is.

  5. I love begonias and I love soft molasses cookies! Had three for breakfast this morning with an orange and coffee ... certainly not homemade - But were very good

    Why were you looking for a picture of a dragon slayer?

    That's pretty funny and substituting your Begonia is Even funnier. haaa?

    That's a nice way for me to go to sleep thinking of begonias and dragon slayers ... I like dragons though so boo hiss on the slayer

  6. This is one of my very favourite flowers. I love it! Thanks! Here, they are also called Angel-Wing Begonias. Same...still love them!
    Have you looked on PhotoBucket for images? Sometimes I utilize them for images.
    Have a good week! Hugs.

  7. Your begonia is beautiful! I love baking on cool, wet days too. Hubby appreciates it too..and he would love a soft molasses cookie! Staying warm is no problem this's hot and humid but I hear relief is coming!

  8. Molasses Crinkles are my husband's favorite cookie, too, but it's still to warm to bake here. Love your begonia. Sarah

  9. Everything here is so dry. I sure can hardly wait for some cold weather.Such pretty flowers Julia
