September Flowers

The Forget- me-not flower

Folklore: In a German legend , God named all the plants when a tiny unnamed one cried out "forget-me -not " O Lord! "God replied that shall be your name".

Henry IV adopted the flower as his symbol during his exile in 1398, and retained the symbol upon his return to England the following year.
The Morning Glory
and Aster or other September flowers.
Have a wonderful Autumnal Equinox day

Cold soup
I have been revisiting a Gladys Taber book and told the Bennie about the soup ,told him I would like to try it.
He read the recipe and said I don't know about Vichyssoise but I can sure make Potato and Leek Soup and you can eat it cold if you want to but I will have mine hot.

Will what can one do he is just a good old southern boy. We just call it delicious Potato Leek Soup.

He provided beef to the Army of 1812 in barrels stamped "US", indicating that they were "US" property. The soldiers began joking that the initials stood for Uncle Sam referring to Wilson, unwittingly inventing the character.Sept. 13 1766

As you all know I have been working on ( parts of the person I am) genealogy. As I do my research I get it on My great great grandfather had 12 children ,so it has been exciting to find what happen to them and their children. I have made contact with so many family members I would have never known. This is a picture in 1930 of my great grandfathers niece and her son in his cleaning business.
This is a 4th great grandfather from a different side of the family we could not find until now.1792---1861
