Photo Friday – Berries (and other good things)

Berries are here! Let’s celebrate. I’m thinking berries with cream, whip cream, on shortcake, in salads, in kuchen, in drinks, in. . . EVERYTHING! 🙂 I love that our garden is starting to show the berries of our labor. 😉 To be honest, berries are not hard to grow. The labor comes with the picking. Or the eating instead of picking. And now that the weekend is here I’m going to fill little buckets with sweet/tart deliciousness, take time to smell the flowers, and look at the (not sure if they’re poisonous) mushrooms. Which means I’m assuming they are poisonous. So I will just enjoy them through pictures. Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

Tea – Eco Teas’ Holy Mate!

Confession, I love elephants. So I may have been swayed by the picture of the dancing Ganesha on this box when I purchased it. Okay, I was swayed by the elephant. You may also notice a theme with the calm energy. My last tea was stress relieving and rejuvenating. Yes, I’m busy and am trying to drink my way to calm. 😉

This tea tastes strongly of peppermint. With a hint of Continue reading

Photo Friday – May Flowers

It’s probably a tad obvious to go from a photo friday about April showers into one about May flowers. But that’s what this week has been full of. D & B have been making visits to the nursery and coming back with containers of flowers to add to the beds. The veteran plants have been doing their part to prove we don’t need anymore petals. The smell of lilacs is beginning to perfume the air and everyday a new flower emerges from one location or another. All in all I love the month of May. The weather starts warming up, the world starts to become colorful again, and it also houses my birthday. 🙂 And this year we’re putting our book on sale. So one new thing to add to the fun of May. But mostly this week is all about flowers. Beautiful little faces, delicate lacy petals, and the fruit that some of them turn into. 🙂 Hooray for May.

Photo Friday – Rain

Right now I’m sitting in a sunny room drinking breakfast tea. The idea of clouds seems so distant. However, this entire week has been filled with them. Covered by them. Fluffy and white. Fluffy and grey and pink. Thin and silvery. I know they have scientific names. And perhaps I could even remember a few of them. But the beauty of clouds is that they can take whatever shape you imagine. Whatever adjective you decide to use for them. And not only are they full of imaginative possibilities they also come full of lightning, thunder, and rain. The beautiful sky splitting purple lightning that was impossible to catch with my point and shoot. The booming rumbles of thunder off in the distance. And the heavy drops of rain that soaked my hair and feet. With all those beautiful sensual experiences my camera felt so inadequate. However, I still tried to capture a bit of it. 🙂
