I love white in a garden..s..
Peonies..roses..feverfew.clematis...they just brighten every spot they are tucked into..
I always speak of perennials because my gardens are 99% perennials..
Except the baskets and a few little extras..
The white fluffy peony is one of my faves and is in a neighbors garden~
But there is something to be said about annuals..boy they they just keep on giving..
I planted flats of annuals for a friend and she asked me to pull the perennials..
Too much..they get too big..
So her gardens became a cacophony of red and white annuals today ( mid June..)..interspersed with so many miniature varied colored roses..and very few ..perennials.
It will look fantastic all summer.!
I said we planted a Canada Day Garden:)
And now to Arthur..:) Arthur is my friends dog..they are such a beautiful couple..That's a little keepsake I made for them on their wedding day..
At that time they had Taz..their beloved dog.. but a little while back..Taz went away..and Arthur came along.
When we had our first grandchild..they packaged up cute things that a nana and grandad should have..
The other day..we met them..and I said.. Arthur is like your child..and she beamed and said yes!!
Her face said it all..
So I thought.. bring them something for their baby:)
Our friends N and D..make cooikies regularly for their Ben..they graciously shared the recipe..
Our Brigitte Cookie cutter came in very handy!
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup peanut butter I used smooth
3/4 cup of milk
In a large bowl combine flour and baking powder
In a small bowl whisk peanut butter and milk until smooth
Make a well in flour mixt. and gradually stir in milk mixture until well blended
Use hands to make dough into 2 pliable balls
Knead each ball well on a floured surface about 2 mins
With a rolling pin roll out dough to 1/4 or 1/2 inch thickness..stamp name:)
Place on baking sheet lined with foil(I used parchment)
Bake 15 mins at 400 F..(Check..mine were small took less long)
Cool on a rack and store in sealed plastic bags in the refrigerator.
I made 1/2 the recipe..
Yes that would be my doing:)
Oli got tattoos when we had him over:)
He picked his designs..♥
One of my favorite sayings..~Max wrote it on bark..it was over his party food table♥
It seems I have developed a small infatuation with Mini Bonne Manan Preserve jars~
It all started with Pinterest and Martha Stewart..for salt and pepper shakers..:)
But I only have one.
These are my first tea type roses..in the tiny little jar.
I am on the lookout now.
How can something so small.. in the material world ...be worth a million fancy bucks to me?:)
This one's going to get mileage:)
If you come across a mini or two..think of the possibilities.:-) ♥
