It has been a delicious and rewarding success.
I have been so pleased that I am asking Mr. HB to put in a third one next spring.
We had a fine feast using our home grown vegetables...
drizzled with olive oil
and fresh ground pepper
ready for the grill.
Onions at the left, zucchini top right and cherry tomatoes bottom right.
Baby new potatoes boiled and then topped with butter and dill.
(I prefer to use fresh mint as it has a sweet tang that goes so well with potatoes)
second crop of rhubarb
the crust was a bit cracked
but gladly the taste was not affected!
I have had a bumper crop of Sweet Peas...their scent is so divine.
I have decided that what keeps me happy is to have fresh flowers in my home.
I can have dust bunnies, and my floors in need of sweeping
the dishes may be dirty and the laundry hamper overfull
if I have some blooms in a vase
I am able to put things in perspective.
I also love
a freshly brewed cup of tea
it's a ritual that soothes
time to sit for a bit and sip
the fragrance of the blend
as it warms
I do treat myself to a proper cup and saucer
when I feel that I need some TLC
a simple cup of tea when served in a beautiful cup
I plan to write more on the simple things in life
of which I partake
and the joy that they bring to me in my daily round.
Hope that you enjoyed Labour Day
it's pouring rain here
and cold so we have put the furnace on!
