I can't tell you how glad I am to be back home, in my own little place.

Look what I found growing on the chicken yard fence. Yep, those are little muscadines, a grape that grows semi-wild in much of the southern woods. I remember my dad's mother canning the most delicious jams from the muscadines growing in their woods. I planted seeds from some I had found at a local farmers' market on a visit to Mississippi years ago. The plants have been growing up the east side of the chicken yard for quite some time now, and yesterday they surprised me with this fruit they've been hiding away from me. I know it's only two tiny clusters, but they sure did make my heart sing!
