My plan to support local farmers this summer is going quite well. I have the garden satisfaction I need from flowers and herbs and far less of the aggravation of fighting insects and veggie loving critters.
This was my haul from Thursday afternoon. How gorgeous is that eggplant? And the homemade mustard is delicious.
The field wildflowers are out and I picked these on a walk the other day.
I attended a birthday party this weekend--a member of our card making group, birthday #95. Lately I just party, party, party!
This party was at the birthday girl's lakeside camp. It was a hot day but there was such a pleasant breeze off the lake. The great grandkids took advantage of the cool water.
Big crowd, including her 99 year old friend from Florida and 90 year old brother in law. (Helped me recover from being the oldest one at the last party! Impossible amounts of delicious food. Musical entertainment by a local barbershop quartet. Friends. A good time.
