First day of Daylight Savings Time and getting used to it. Enjoying the bountiful mums and their beauty.
Worked on painting the supports and bench on the front patio. Scraping, sealing and painting. This is some really old wood we are restoring.
ORANGE COUNTY DISTRICT FLOWER SHOW 2012
In case you missed it, the Huntington View Garden Club had their annual flower show last weekend at Sherman Gardens in Corona Del Mar, California. This is a professionally judged flower show, with ribbons for awards. There were different divisions, such as Vegetable, Design, Miniature, Horticulture and Theme, which this year was "At The Movies". You can tell a lot of hard work went into the planning, participating and execution of this wonderful show! Congrats to the Huntington View Garden Club on all their hard work! Photos by Paul Butler.

(3/4) cups Regular Salted Butter
(1-1/2) cup Packed Brown Sugar

Peel and thinly slice 3 apples. Slice bread into a small dice, or tear into very small pieces.
Coat a small baking dish or pie plate with butter. Then add 1/3 of the brown sugar, 1/3 of the apple slices, and 1/3 of the breadcrumbs. Repeat these layers twice more, ending with breadcrumbs.
