It took almost three hours to find exactly the deep yellow and orange pansies I wanted for the large boxes next to our front door and big Chinese pots on the porches in the back of the house. The front features yellow, the back orange.
Now, no matter how miserable the weather -- and it's quite miserably dark, drizzly and rainy -- these bright sunny flowers set the tone for the day. Mission accomplished.
Just back from the last holiday luncheon celebration of the season. The vegetable accompaniment was divine, mashed potatoes and celery root. Since we were en famille (I do this with my best friends as well) I asked for the recipe.
At the moment have no idea what will be on the calendar for next week, but I promise it will be full. I just wanted to wish you a lovely Sunday.
