A French Country Weekend
This week my new fruit of the year 2012 and the same wish to accompany it, was lush, delicious and beautiful -- they were lovely to look at and scrumptious to eat -- fresh figs.
One large is 47 calories; one small is 30. I don't even know why I mention this. Who cares? According to various food sites they get a perfect grade "A" for all their nutritional benefits.
I spied several varieties of plums so they'll definitely go on my wish list.
Just finished making two bouquets of roses, one tone-on-tone salmons and corals; the other various nuances on yellow. It's time to do some serious dead-heading on the rose bushes.
Oh yes, also found two enormous zucchinis hidden beneath several gigantic leaves in the potager. I considered putting them next to Charlotte for a photo op to give you an idea of scale as in German shepherd versus zucchini, but she didn't quite understand my intention and wanted to get away from them as quickly as possible.
Weather report: windy, pleasantly warm, huge powder puff clouds against an azure sky -- just another beautiful day.
