Some days were actually heavenly~
Hollyhocks sous cloche...trying to encourage growth.
We did our first online curbside order and it went well.. so well we did it again.. again..wrong order the first time..lol.. but we were still there and the young man was so apologetic and handsome..honest mistake..2 Moniques;)
Strawberries were in the pick so I made a custard Creme pat /strawberry/Dorie Greenspan sweet shortbread crust tart.J's and mine lol..it's a small tart and mine is smaller.
Very good..Coming clean here.. the creme pat is pre-made.and bought.The rest home sweet home..my glaze is Bonne Maman strawberry jam melted.I am not fond of glazes in pouches.
And The View From Great Island's Strawberry Buttermilk cake is always a winner!Thanks Sue!
I made my fave treat when we can get lobster..lobster rolls..
and LCBO's sushi pizza made me want to make that too..
Both were really good.
Garden wise..I am not gung ho..I am grasping at straws ..and watching seeds grow and not grow.
My standard Korean Lilac died..it was to me the focal point of my front garden:(
We had a bad heat wave ..humid..it's too dry..things are dying.
I have put hostas in usual annual pots..
Time will tell if I get to a nursery.
My nice neighbour picked me up two ferns for the front porch..
Still not excited about everybody coming out now..
and so many no masks..
Oh well I am no authority by far.
Our Serviceberry bloomed beautifully..and then ..2 days later ..gone!
All the blooming trees could not stand the heat.
Shortest bloom time ever..
May is not made for 100F temps.
I took advantage a of a favorite tea company's free ship;)
And enjoyed every minute of Chris Petri's latest youtube tutorial~strike that..before last.
My posts used to be cohesive and coordinated and then I lost everything and post less..
So nothing is coordinated..I just post here and there with ideas..
No theme..just sharing what works etc..
Mostly Instagram posts..that I place here in more detail.
It's just such a different time..the blog gone missing..
And now all this turmoil since I started this whole post..That just saddens me inside out.
But ..here I am.
