Happy Fall Everyone! Its not super cold here but there is cooler temperatures down our way. It has been mid 70's and just gorgeous outside. This morning when I woke up and opened all the blinds to let in the light I noticed that the trees in the backyard are changing colors. Keep in mind that in our area we really dont have a change of seasons. It usually works this way. Super hot one day, then a cold front blows in, its cold for one or two days then back to super hot. Thats pretty much it in a nutshell. The trees in our backyard looked so pretty that I had to go outside and take a few pictures to show you. They looked really pretty with all the different shades of fall. This is my favorite time of year!

I went to Wimberly Market Days this weekend with some great girlfriends and I found this bleeding heart plant. I have tried to grow it before and had no luck. We shall see this time. It is beautiful right now. I re-planted it in a bigger pot and it perked up. I hope that I can protect it through our harsh winter. Ha!
With the cooler temperatures settling in I am reminded of when I was a kid and my mother would make this spice tea. This is a truly southern recipe that is very popular. It is also a great gift for teachers, girlfriends and just to make for yourself.
Here are your ingredients:
Just put them all in a bowl...
Mix the ingredients thoroughly with a fork until well blended.
