I found another bean pot. I think it came from my parents' place. I actually have one other that is small and probably a newer reproduction.That should be the last of the stoneware revelations. Sadly beans come in a can now and you can warm them on a stove or in a microwave. Cooking beans in a pot for long periods of time doesn't happen much anymore. When it is done they do it in a casserole or pyrex dish. The ceramic stoneware is more decorative than the before mentioned. I am sure now I will have blogger friends that will tell me they still bake there beans with bacon strips laying on the top of them.
I have a multiflora pink one at the old house I would like to move but maybe I will just leave it to stay with the garden there. I may just look for a new one at the nursery center.
As I mowed at the old place I could see that my peony blooms are slow in opening there. I guess it is a little more shaded there so they are just not in bloom. We have had a lot of rain there but it has been so cold that the grass hasn't grown much. I didn't get done and will have to squeeze in time next week.
A couple of trips to the hospital are in the plans to day and a trip to southern Iowa will happen this afternoon. The prediction of rain this afternoon may not be in the southern part of the state.
I wish everyone to have a good day today. Thanks for stopping by today.
