As a native Californian now living on the East coast, I'm always impressed by the different plants that grow around here. While I was on the Cape, I admired some very lovely garden patches filled with lush flowers and plants.
I discovered the happy growing delivered some fresh goodness to the local farmer's market in Provincetown.
My tomatoes are coming along and I expect to harvest plenty of them with some fresh basil in the weeks ahead. The rest of the crop will make an appearance next month, when I look forward to being overwhelmed by squash and peppers. I always welcome the summer bounty. But in the meantime, I'll admire these pictures of other gardener's lovely successes.
I am grateful that Robert Mueller is on the job because I have grown weary of the bully-in-chief. He’s bad for the world and worse than that for our nation. I like to read (I just finished Sherman Alexie’s The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… holiday plans, Mason jars, twinkling lights, the smell of piney branches, a good book, Christmas ribbon, holiday cooking, cheery plaid skirts, the smooth feel of velvet, advent calendars, spiced cider, a steamy mug of tea on a cold night, soft nightgowns, a good book, address labels, morning coffee, cashmere sweaters, the smell of cedar, time to write, and the tired feel of a good workout.
