The lilies are blooming albeit not as in full force as usual w/ the drought..
The colors are glorious..there's just one I am not over the moon w/..kind of peach w/ a deep mauve edge..peach and mauve?:(
Speaking of peachy colors..I found apricots at Adonis..had to buy a few to try painting and to eat..found a delightful recipe..I halved it..and it made 3 small ind.desserts.
I found it here..however I modified it...I used a baking yeast I have that has vanilla in it:) I adjusted the amount because my envelopes are suitable for 500 grams of flour.And I added grated Tonka.The apricots are macerated in Cognac:)Just while you prep the mix.I pressed my halved aricots into the batter.
I made Josée's sweet relish again..it's our fave for burgers..I do like a spicy mayo that has pickle juice in it..or Sweet Baby Ray's..but this relish is a keeper.
I seem to be lucky every yr w/ my garlic..but Debbie at Mountain Breaths kindly sent me a link to a great video..about when to harvest your garlic..here it is..He husband Joe is a garlic grower too!
I love this miniature white rose that I have (2) forms a large bush..and the flowers are so similar to The pink Fairy..could be a white Fairy:)
Did a bit of painting..the apricots..may champagne glasses thanks to Carol's tutelage..those champagne bottles..and glasses..:)
And I have to tell you some photographers are so inspirational on IG..
One I follow ..actually 2..I think they are husband and wife..
Jackie Greaney and JPHavel have remarkably beautiful photos of New England..Travel around the world..recently they were in Nova Scotia and their photos inspired me.
I was also inspired by a photo one of my daughter's took of Lucas..her son..in her convertible antique of a car:) Sipping an iced something w/ his hair in the wind..he will be 13 August 6th..this is the card I made for him totally inspired by her photo.For this one I used my Ipad as a lightbox..and transferred the outline..then I painted it.
This was the photo..
I can't wait to give it to him.Of course I am more excited than he will be..lol♥
In August we celebrate..Lucas..Mylène,Giuliana and Adamo:)
13,43,17 and 19.
Have a lovely weekend..as always.
