Inspired by a Field of Daisies
The roadsides are dotted with clumps of yellow and white daisies surrounded by lush, rain-aided green grasses .... These bright, seemingly smiling flowers brighten the drive home as well as the fields and ditches along the way.
Our intense heat has returned along with the beginning of summer bounties. One of the Plant a Row volunteers brought me such incredibly delicious plums yesterday, so my task today is to render them into my husband's favorite prserves. The stuffed squash and daylily blossoms yesterday were a great hit! One volunteer brought cheesecake to share, deviled eggs from his own chickens, a cooling watermelon and I added zucchini bread -- what a feast. On top of that, we donated 40 1/2 pounds of food to the foodbank yesterday!
We're expecting company this weekend, as well as hosting C's Jam (the music kind), and yardwork to do - going to be busy -- again!
Stay cool today ...!
