There is a glorious garden along Hollywood Crescent in which many gorgeous flowers bloom...it is a riot of colour.
My favourites are the dahlias...I do not grow dahlias in our garden but I am very tempted to plant some next year.
I cross the street to get closer so that I can admire their exquisite details.
Such vibrant colours, each slightly different, some with frilly petals.
This dahlia is the size of a dinner plate!
A small feather had landed on this crimson dahlia.
a symphony of pink and white almost a mauve shade
orange with a smattering of red
The sun shone brightly before the rains came...
with a chilly breeze and the downpour I cocooned indoors and sat in a comfy chair to read my book.
This is a very interesting story that spans several generations
I am eager to find out what happens at the end.
I made a huge main dish salad
served it with some homemade "jam jar" dressing.
The jam jar dressing is easy...
taste it while you mix in the ingredients
you might want less jam or honey depending on your preference.
large dollop of grainy mustard
6 tablespoons of olive oil
3 tablespoons wine vinegar
a couple of tablespoons of jam or honey
salt and pepper to taste
Shake well and lightly dress the salad just before serving.
Later in the afternoon the winds got fierce and the rains were hitting the windows sideways...
feeling chilled I decided to make a comforting roast for dinner.
Pork tenderloin coated with grainy mustard draped with bacon.
Vegetables ready to roast alongside the pork.
We had a yummy dinner and I used the leftovers to make a Cottage Pie.
Recently there have been some concerns raised by an anonymous reader regarding my linking to a company that makes a product that I have had great results using and I shared it with my readers.
This reader thinks that I am somehow linked with the company and I can assure you that I am not...the same reader suggests that I am "silly" advertising and promoting products when I am not receiving anything in return!
I will continue to link to websites and share my experiences with products that I enjoy using.
I do not receive any money or gifts when I do so...
