Little Things

A few little random things:

- I bought two four inch pots of basil at Trader Joe's several weeks ago.
They are ready to be cut and the first batch of pesto made.

- Once I finished reading THOSE ANGRY DAYS by Lynne Olson (it was excellent),
I started to clean my reading palette by reading some chick lit.
JOY FOR BEGINERS by Erica Bauermeister
SHADOW SPELL by Nora Roberts
DEATH COME QUICKLY by Susan Wittig Albert
I enjoyed them all and am now ready to take on another history book.
I just haven't decided which one.

- Early Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market
Smoked Black Pepper Chevre from Blue Heron Farm
Golden beets, turnips, cabbage, cauliflower
Apple cinnamon rolls
Fresh picked strawberries

- Another rose blooming in Musashi's Garden.

Wild Blue Yonder Rose

This one is Wild Blue Yonder.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

What a great way to describe a transition out of and back to heavier reading...good idea, too.

Our farmers market won't even open for another three or four weeks. I'm envious of your haul.

Yay for the first pesto bounty! We live off of it in summer. Can't wait to get my first home grown batch! Lovely rose! Love the bright color!

I love farmer's markets. I have hopes of building a greenhouse some day.

Kim Stevens said...

I'm almost sure I can smell that rose - beautiful!

Irene said...

So after you've cut your basil, does it grow again in the pot? Love your rose.

Would love to make my very own pesto one day. I admire your appetite for reading (and finishing all those books!). And oh what a lovely rose :)

Lulu said...

I have not been frequenting farmers markets as often as I should. Somehow I always forget times and places for all the different ones we have. I do go to Fresh Market though and like it very much.
Have you read David McCullough's Truman? Very good book.
