Herbs and Spices

June Eighth, Two Thousand and Fourteen

I’ve been sick (boo!), so I’m behind in my pictures by four days.  I’m doing something tomorrow, so I’ll make them up then.

I took this shot right before the dread virus took me down.  I made one of my favorite meals,  Moroccan Meatballs, another recipe from Well Fed (you should buy this book!).  Every time I mix up the parsley, cumin, smoked paprika, sea salt, and pepper, I flip over the beautiful color combo of the spices lying on top of one another.

An Invite

June Seventh, Two Thousand and Fourteen

For years I’ve driven past this driveway.  There is something about the bend in the road, and the way the fence frames the entrance, powered by tall trees that grabs my attention.  It’s an entrance that invites, ne entices one to enter it.

Welsh Heritage Days

Welsh coal miners founded the small town I live in, in Washington.  Annually, our town spends a day in celebration, with the railroad museum decking itself out with the Welsh flag.

My cell takes terrible pictures when zooming in, as I discovered.  Regardless, with my beautiful friend, Beth on her wedding day.  Much love to her and Jonathan.

These Irises were transplanted last year, in a rather unhealthy way.  So it’s exciting to see them come back vigorous and with such a deep color.  They’re getting more sun, which is making them very happy flowers.

I was sick for a few day, and so need to make up for those missed pictures.  Thus there are three today.

Saturday morning I am flying out to Nebraska for a wedding, and won’t be posting for a bit.  When I come back I’ll have a full photo essay…I hope …to share with you.

Two tiered flower pots my mom created.

It’s hard not to fall in love with our garden in spring.  Even Joon Bug seems to spend more time amongst the oddball assortment of plants.
