when Whippoorwills call and evening is nigh,
i hurry to my blue heaven.
White California Poppy. The center shines like a light.
a turn to the right, a little white light,
will lead me to my blue heaven.
i'll see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room,
The only baby around our house, Buffy napping. Yes, that is her tongue.
just molly and me, and baby makes three,
we're happy in my blue heaven.
The peas we planted when Whippoorwills called were field peas: Purple Hulled Crowders, Black Eyed Peas and in the southern part of the state, White Cream Peas or Lady Peas.
Early garden peas were my FIL's favorite, LeSueur canned peas. I'm not fond of canned peas nor canned asparagus, but found that eating them cold they are more palatable. I was about to chop celery for tuna salad today when I thought of the half can of peas not heated for last night's supper. (Leftover canned veggies are better if you save them unheated, just heat half the can and save the other half in a plastic container.) Tuna salad made with dill pickles and cold canned peas was a tasty lunch.
