"Home-grown goodness" I received this past weekend, and I want to share with you.
Flowers from a good friend's garden that now grace my kitchen island. A combination of vibrant colors, placed in a glass vase with a white tuelle bow...perfect!
The same friend's daughter just learned to make blueberry pies, pastry and all. She shared one with us and I can't tell you how delicious it is. I wish you could stop by for a cup of coffee and a slice of pie. In a dream world, that would happen on a Monday morning:)
"Ultra-sweet" tomatoes purchased for me by my mother, from a local well known tomato festival. Tonight...our favorite BLTs with a slice of sharp cheese, a bit of mayo, and a slice of avocado. Oh, I can't wait. One of my summer highlights.
Lush green peppers and zucchinis, home-grown and delivered by my dear neice, when she stopped in at my house on Saturday morning. The visit was to discuss some last minute shower details for an uncoming bridal shower, and true to her personality, she brought me a brown bag with these beautiful vegtables in it, right from her garden, plus six of the sweetest fresh peaches of the season. I can't show you those since we already ate them. Oh, the many joys of the summer.
My pink rose buds look so pretty in the tiny crystal salt shaker, I found on Saturday,at an antique store, for .50.
This my friends, is the best "home-grown" present ever! I received this picture from my daughter on Saturday. Pleased as can be, she loves eating the food herself, and much prefers adult food to baby food. On this "hot" sunny Monday, I hope this little one's precious, toothy, grin will bring you your own smile today.
