Love the yellow screen door!
This definitely brightens up an already bright day.
A friend grows Chili Peppers.
A small piece from any of these will make your tongue come alive!
“Thai Dragon”, “Habanero ‘Kukulkan'”, “Purira”, “Prairie Fire”, “Bulgarian Carrot”, are names that carry just a hint of their potency.
The word for me is “Look. Don’t eat!”
