Friday’s Hunt v1.8 -- "H" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of February 19th, (1) Starts with H; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Family 

(1a) Starts with H: Hibiscus -- We never had a hibiscus until we moved here to Katy (Texas) and it was here when we came. This one has several fresh orange flowers every day, just for us as the backyard is enclosed with a board fence.  And just about every day we look out the breakfast room window and admire it. Sometimes aloud. 

I can tell by this picture that it was taken before being fertilized.  Now it is a luscious green and more bushy.
(1b) Starts with H:  Hot Dog and Homemade -- This time it's a corn dog with leftover Homemade (Mrs. Jim's) potato salad. I usually put yellow mustard on my leftover potato salad but never on the fresh, first day, treat.  I would never want to offend the cook and her/his choice of the way food should be.

 (2) Week's Favorite: Thinking of being on Seven Mile Beach at Grand Cayman Island.
(3) Family:  Mrs. Jim and I will celebrate, again, our 43rd wedding anniversary next Wednesday, the 24th.  I say again because this cruise, on the Princess Caribbean, that we took from January 31 to February 7 was our official celebration.  I think we will go out some place to eat but I don't know where yet.  MacDonald's?
Some place I have a nice family picture, us, five kids, six grandkids, and two greats.  But this one of us at the Seven Mile Beach will have to do.  
(4)  A lagniappe for you, a Poem for You: "The cows will come" (all is copyright, pictures and all, as on this blog.  I previously posted it on my other blog, Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place [link]). 
. . . . . . . . . The cows will come

The cows will come
at farmer's call

Into the barn
each knows her stall

Brownie comes last
she's boss of all

The pigs come too
crowding their trough

Roosters don't come
'til lights go off

I'm not a cow
pig or goat's gruff

Still I come when-
ever you call

. - The animal pictures were taken at the Vauxhall City Farm, at Vauxhall, Borough of Lambeth, London, U.K. (visit it here). Oh, yes, the top picture is on of the horses coming in from giving rides all day.  The cows weren't receptive to picture taking.  The resting Ducks were at a canal near Northampton. 
. - We took KP to the farm, she loved it.  A little scared of the geese, but even some adults are afraid of that.  If you visit London with young ones, take them there.  Also zoo at Regent's Park is very nice.  Admittance is free, both places.

The Fine Print:
Teresa of Eden Hills is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. She has three alternatives for us to post about but this one, Alphabet series, will be the one I will try to follow and post about.  - Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter." 
 - The Mr. Linky address
here has a list of others who are participating if you would to read what these folk are doing for the Friday post  - For the week of February 19, our assignment was to post on any or all of these ideas: (1) Starts with H, (2) Week’s Favorite, and (3)Family, and (4) another lagniappe poem for you.

I'm glad you had a wonderful early celebration for your anniversary. That rocks.

I want some of the potato salad, but I never, ever put mustard in my potato salad. Might have to try it though. Or not.

Loved the poem.

Have a fabulous day. ☺
Congratulations on your 43rd anniversary! The Seven Mile Beach looks very popular!
Congratulations on your anniversary. So beautifu, interesting photos you have published. And your homemade meal looks yammy. Hope you'll get to the beach next summer.

Seven Mile bach looks lovely and i love the poem and shots below it. Have a lovely weekend.
Happy anniversary! You two look so happy together. I'm sure your wonderful cook would not be offended, but it's nice that you are so considerate. Beautiful. Of course, I enjoyed your barnyard poem. Thanks for joining at Friday's Hunt.
It's a week for anniversaries - Happy Anniversary to you! Many more.
Isn't that a hibiscus rather than a hyacinth?
Love the goats!
There is nothing wrong with mustard an just about any salad - fresh or tomorrow it works! Your bride is lovely indeed!
Well Jim, when I make my potato salad there is always some dijon mustard mixed in so I know much it adds to the flavour. Happy anniversary; celebrate as many times as you want for we are a good example to the young people. My hubby and I will celebrate 44 years on July 1 - how the time flies!
Hello, the 7 mile beach look familiar. Hubby and I were there years ago. I have not tried a corn dog, maybe someday. The hibiscus is a lovely bloom. Happy 43rd anniversary!
Enjoy your new week ahead!
I hope you have a happy anniversary!
Love your Hibiscus, very pretty! The beautiful white beach is very pretty too! Your poem is awesome and Happy Anniversary!! :)
