Welcome to where I am, where my kitchen's always messy, a pot's (or a poet) always about to boil over, a dog is always begging to be fed. Drafts of poems on the counter. Windows filled with leaves. Wind. Clouds moving over the mountains. If you like poetry, books, and music--especially dog howls when a siren unwinds down the hill-- you'll like it here.


MY NEW AUTHOR'S SITE, KATHRYNSTRIPLINGBYER.COM, THAT I MYSELF SET UP THROUGH WEEBLY.COM, IS NOW UP. I HAD FUN CREATING THIS SITE AND WOULD RECOMMEND WEEBLY.COM TO ANYONE INTERESTED IN SETTING UP A WEBSITE. I INVITE YOU TO VISIT MY NEW SITE TO KEEP UP WITH EVENTS RELATED TO MY NEW BOOK.


MY NC POET LAUREATE BLOG, MY LAUREATE'S LASSO, WILL REMAIN UP AS AN ARCHIVE OF NC POETS, GRADES K-INFINITY! I INVITE YOU TO VISIT WHEN YOU FEEL THE NEED TO READ SOME GOOD POEMS.

VISIT MY NEW BLOG, MOUNTAIN WOMAN, WHERE YOU WILL FIND UPDATES ON WHAT'S HAPPENING IN MY KITCHEN, IN THE ENVIRONMENT, IN MY IMAGINATION, IN MY GARDEN, AND AMONG MY MOUNTAIN WOMEN FRIENDS.

Garden's End



The most beautiful blossom to me is the okra blossom. Although our tomatoes are finished, the chard, and most of the cucumbers, the okra is still coming in. My sunflowers were eaten by rabbits, except for these two, below. They are standing tall here as September begins. The apples are littering the ground, as if begging me to save them for pies, apple crisp, butternut & apple bisque.

How does our big dog Bro feel about all of this? Roll over and wallow in the September sun!

Yes, my summer garden is about finished, but my little fall garden is showing promise, unless an early frost surprises us.

Lovin' big dog Bro sunning himself ... at our house we call that 'putting your sunny side up'! LOL

Oh those apples! And the pears! Golden orbs of guilt reproaching me for not doing something with every one. We have never had such a huge crop! And I've never had so little time!
