Taking a breather from our Honeymoon adventures, I thought I’d give you a glimpse into our more recent days. They slip by towards summer with a welcome pull. I can feel the heat shimmering just over the horizon. In the meantime, I cherish these days of blooming flowers, good food, and dear friends.
We bought an immaculate and extensive set of Spode Rosalie china at the most recent Queen Anne Blocksale. Planning to sell shortly. Any takers?
Recent sun allowed me to process last year’s lavender, which been patiently drying. The pillowcase and rolling pin method answered admirably.
Our first BBQ of the season was one for the books, with three dozen Totem oysters. Mmmm.
I have watched with bated breath as my brugmansia sent out its first blooms. Amazingly, they opened white before transforming to pink overnight.
A new favorite: oven-roasted tomatoes and olives with true cod and quinoa cakes.
Once again, we are inundated with peonies. There are worse problems to have.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.
