Summertime is for Corn – Great Corn Figurals

14 August 2011

Apple-Touch-IconAI grew up in Maryland and remember all of the corn fields I would see on my way to the Maryland and Delaware beaches in the summer. We would always stop at the fruit and vegetable stands and buy Silver Queen Corn. Makes my mouth water. Everything is fried and baked dry in this terrible drought in Texas so I thought I would play with and post my corn bottles!
