Notes from the weekend

::  The boys and I made a teepee. This had been an idea in my head since we moved here. After we built it, they haven’t played in it at all. Some ideas are better in the head than in reality. I think the view is great, maybe I’ll move in.
::  We made homemade honey cinnamon ice cream in the old hand-crank ice cream freezer. We received that ice cream maker for our wedding, from Scott’s parents, as hand cranked ice cream was their summertime ritual when Scott was growing up. I’d love to share the recipe, but he made it up, as always. It was delicious!
:: After going to a garden party this weekend and seeing what the hostess did with her roses, I immediately came home and planted our mint among the roses too. And I think I’ll plant lavender here and there around them too. Oh the fragrance from it all on that hot day!
::  Though I had no business in doing so, I bought a hydrangea this weekend. It was love at first sight. I tried my best to walk away, I was only there for the bee balm. But as soon as I saw it, my feet wouldn’t move any other direction except to the cash register.
::  Our meals are starting to take a shift towards being more and more homegrown. Beet greens, potatoes & onions. Looking forward to more meals like this!

  1. What beautiful pictures

      I loved your remark about feet only moving toward the register…I’ve frequently been “afflicted” with that disorder!!!! It looks like a beauty and you certainly have good taste!
      Happy planting!

  2. I love dinners from the garden. Good luck with the hydrangea, they are beautiful. Are you hot, too? We are ROASTING here in the East.

  3. Tis a world wide problem ‘feet moving towards the cash register’.
    Love your blog! x
