yesterday, I took a small basket of produce to a friend.. eggs, newly dug potatoes, tomatoes, garlic and capsicums.. & a sprig of lemon thyme ~ she is amazed at how well the garden is producing in such a short time.. but the hens are happy and you know how much work i put into the soil when i first moved in. worms are in abundance now at Villa Maria..
as I sat outside today - sipping on a glass of lemon balm water.. dragonflys flittered to and fro .. the garden is going wild at the moment with the abundant rain and heat..
later in the afternoon, we set up a little table in our courtyard.. candles, a glass of wine and ordered home delivered pizza.. & sat outside under the moon ~
to top my day off I received an email from my friend thanking me for the gift from my garden: I’ve already made a hole in your precious produce. 4 little potatoes for dinner, sampled the ‘burst-in-the-mouth’ tomatoes and lemon thyme was chopped into the chickpea tagine...yum! Forever grateful for your wonderful sharing. Bless you Sweet Angel 0:-)
other little things I have enjoyed this week: a large jug of water flavoured with a sprig or two of mint. 3 large gardenias from a friends garden. a lovely head massage & playing with my grandsons.
and more ecstasy here: join in ! with Rebecca
