Through the Kitchen Window

Friday, July 24, 2015


We are definitely in the dog days of summer!

If you've been hanging around here for any length of time you know I love nature.
During this hot and busy summer,
one of the joys while cooking and doing the dishes
are the views through the kitchen window.

I've shared some of them with you; beautiful songbirds and snakes ~ A Special Place 
and the hummingbirds are such fun to watch ~ Hummingbirds in Flight.

Many amazing sights, some happen too quickly to capture, but sometimes I get lucky...

Crazy Crust Cobbler ~ Simple, Quick & Delicious!

Summertime is great for many reasons; great friends and fresh picks from the garden to name two!
Kind and generous folks who
share
summer's
bounty
with
us!

Fresh picked squash, melons, tomatoes, cucumbers, and blackberries; yum, yum!

There was a knock on the door and I answered to find a bucket full of fresh picked blackberries; I knew just what to do with them!

New Dining Room Centerpiece

Thursday, July 16, 2015


Do you have a favorite flower?

The rose, magnolia, gardenia, peony, and hydrangea would be at the top of my list, but I don't think I could pick just one.

I enjoy bringing fresh flowers in from the garden to use in arrangements.  It's also nice having flowers that don't need to be watered and changed out every few days.
