DUKE GARDENS AT THE END OF SUMMER AND A BIG GAME DAY WEEKEND


I bet you thought I was going to talk college football today.  No…don’t think so except to say…

Our house was not a happy place on Saturday…As in most families…

If Momma Ain’t happy, Ain’t Nobody Happy…nobody Is or Isn’t!

And good news!  I am not retiring these yet!

My challenge was to clog all the way to Knoxville if Tennessee beat Florida.

Instead, I think I will be listening to a little mountain music in the North Carolina mountains and if you hear a little tapping of feet you will know I am clogging, I just didn’t clog all the way to Knoxville.  Ok enough!!!

I never give up and my Vols will be back!

 As promised in a previous post, our visit to Durham over the Labor Day weekend included a visit to the Sarah P.Duke Gardens on the campus of Duke University.

The Terraces are one of the highlights of the gardens.

The colors were spectacular.  Lots of fuchsia pinks and lime greens.

Watch for upcoming stories from my tailgating travels….Think some big games are coming up this weekend.

Will be showcasing a few recipes and insight…well sort of…don’t put smoked trout out with the trash…

You might just attract a bear.

Come celebrate with me.  I’ll save you a seat at the table.
