Florence ,a Friend..and Flowers~
Sunflowers~ Be still my beating heart..
I am growing them along with basil(Jacques' is doing better than mine~)..and rosemary.. and garlic.. just because they all scream Italy to me~
A friend.. an accomplished artist..is in Florence right now~
Did I ever mention I loved Florence?.. we spent just one day..I could have spent more..I felt rushed in this city of artists..
And wished then and now..time would have moved more slowly..My friend the artist will LOVE it~
When I see these..I think of her..( and my mom of course..and Susan and Mary~ and now Chapot and Ronelle!) the palettes..all full of promise and wonder~
I hope she paints a dab or two..I know she has her Cotman pockets :)I love those!!!
I picked a bouquet of sunflowers late yesterday afternoon to celebrate Ollie w/ the bolognese sauce she left us before leaving..She bought it in Little Italy..I never buy sauces..It was great to try a good one:) I did add hot pepper flakes..but wow..this sauce coated the linguini to perfection~
We thought of her..Italy..sunflowers.. and Florence~
