Another..dans notre jardin..
Everything is coming together nicely..I must say it frightens me how the perennials are a bit ahead of their time..All the rain we have had has made things very lush and as soon as the sun pops out buds bloom..
Do you know that in one hour things can look different?
I am sure my neighbors think me strange to walk them several times a day.
But things do change in my zone..rapidly.
This Iris looks in flight~
This one with it's rain drops:)
You cannot pick favorites out of these cancan dancers:)
Most of my mauves..blues..and rose ones live in a front bed with the Baptisia..Roses..Clematis.(tulips are done..) lillies,Lilac tree..Monkshood,Peonies..Russian Sage...
At this time of year it is my favorite bed..I see it out our bathroom window..looking towards 3 of Alphabet boys house..
Out back..later in the afternoon..this little guy was waiting for me..
I was quite far and he only stayed but one bit..:)
On the table.. those delish 6 week muffins I have told you about many times..I have a very similar recipe in my book Suncoast Seasons..
Jacques has taken over making them..
They look 100 times better than mine..
And we have discovered a trick..
When you take out your mix..as you should have ap 6 750 gr containers..(we use empty yogurt ones)..add plumped raisins of dates.. FRESHLY..to the mix.. even better!
I love the fact that you mix up a big batch..and then simply bake as many as you need every time..until you begin again:)
We also add flax seeds and cinnamon to the original recipe..
The Herb Boat is filling in nicely~
I added it to my journal..seemed easy enough to try..this time I used my Micron pen and then filled in w/ watercolors..
There are so many techniques..
It's fun to practice with different ones..
I found a very cute site you might enjoy..
They Draw And Cook~
It's really cute..recipes are submitted with art..enjoyable!
PS..I know these garden posts are a tad tedious..but it's a way of my keeping a journal..I do this every year at this time..
Winter is devoid of blooms and color.And ours is long..
I jump on this bandwagon:)
