We had 800 meters of corn fields to drive by..it was beautiful.
My daughter said :"aren't we lucky to live here?""We have fields bursting w/ produce when some starve..we have so much..look how pretty everything is."
I swear that sounded exactly like me when I have been with our other daughter ,Caroline.
I am always repeating myself..about how beautiful here is..and then I heard myself but the words came from another person.
It's so funny how our children inherit certain traits..here and there..of Jacques or I..all mixed up.The great gene pool.
So we got loads of blueberries..we went early..and by the time we left the heat and humidity were settling in again.
I decided to make 2 little pies.. and some jam..and save some to eat fresh..we may go back they will be open until the end of August.
Very nice ,young,gentle owner.
I told him I preferred his blueberries to another place..and he so nicely said..they have many things they cultivate..not one nasty competitive remark..
I loved his answer.Gracious. I didn't like mine.Lesson learned.
You can say you love his fields,just don't compare.
Not necessary.Less is best.
I made Linda's pie dough again..which is quite similar to the one the TB makes..I have not comapared the quantities..but it was so hot..the dough..for the hearts,did not hold it's shape as well..
the filling was just blueberries,cornstarch, sugar and cinnamon.
I am crazy about some of the pie decorators on Instagram.
I am crazy about some of the gardeners on Instagram.
I am crazy about some the photographers on Instagram.
I am crazy about some of the artists on Instagram.
You find people from your urban and country settings..vintage from England..beautiful children..
just another pretty venue apart from Blogging.
If you haven't looked recently..go peek and make a search.
You will be amazed.
One of the pie decorators is called the Topless Baker:) he has you tube videos and his pie decorating one was very good..his attention to detail is sweet.
Just one of hundreds I now follow..
Like the bloggers I love and follow..
It's different..blogging.. my perception is....you get to "know"the person..I am possibly wrong.
on Instagram..it's more ♥ing something..You click on a heart.
it means you like it.
You open your Instagram..and you are seeing gardens in Sweden..vintage finds in the UK..artists from all over the world....Calligraphers..bakers..many photographers I follow are from Mtl and I have gotten to appreciate my city even more.
Saturday I went to my brocante..again..so MUCH stuff..all so different and fun.
The above..all repurposed wood..made like vintage sewing machine drawers w/ alovely pull kno..at the front..at $15.00 I thought what a great price..
cute for bathrooms..kitchen..seed storage,art supplies etc..
This man has great..garden benches/structures in metal w/ a nice old green patina..
if I was 20 yrs younger I might invest:)
we have bouquinistes too:)
Love it.What did I buy? A small wood cigar case again..for paints:)
I have bought a few things from that man..they work so hard,many having to be there by 6 AM..set up..stay all day.And it was HOT.
