Look at what our garden is starting to churn out! We were determined to get a veggie garden going this year and we did it!! My husband and I have two black thumbs and practically no gardening experience, but first we had peas, and now zuchinni, beans and tomatos! Granted it is more a novelty garden than something to help reduce bills at the grocery store as we had hoped, but next year we'll know exactly what to do .... and we plan on producing a veritable bounty of vegetable goodness! I so want to put in a blueberry bush too. How exciting!
One of the pleasures of late summer evenings is sitting out on our mossy patio with the scent of English lavender and lemon thyme in the air and watching the birds fly overhead and the wind whisper through the trees. Last night we took some plates of fresh baked rosemary potatoe bread dripping with preserves out onto the patio as the sun set. Ah bliss! If you haven't tried St. Dalfour preserves from France run, don't walk, to the store! Unlike American jams, they don't have any sugar added, just pure natural fruit and you can really taste the difference. They are a bit more expensive, but well worth it!
While sitting on the patio I thought I smelled the first whiff of Fall in the air. I couldn't say exactly what it was ... maybe the smell of the earth and reeds or a slight change in the evening light .... something that made me realize that summer is starting it's decline and that before we know it Fall will be here.
I'm supposed to taking a bloggie break, but I'm not doing a very good job of it am I ? :)
