Firey Skipper


This little lady has been enjoying a big pot
 of flowers on my front porch.
She's a friendly little girl, too!

    1. She is sweet...took me a little bit of investigating to find her name, but once I did I could even tell that
      she was female. Love her big eyes!

    3. You know we drink out tea unsweetened up here...unless it's hot. lol....sacrilege, I know!
      I do know how to make southern sweet tea, though, so you're safe and won't die of thirst.
