Spring



On the drive home from a wonderful Mother's Day dinner Saturday night at the vegetarian restaurant Great Sage, we were treated to the sound-and-light show of the season's first thunderstorm. The humidity and heat of the last few days broke and Sunday was glorious.

We spent much of it outside in the garden, admiring our broccoli...



...swiss chard...



...and little fig trees.



We took turns reading aloud at the picnic table, enjoying sherry and knitting while we listened to each other. Son spent much of the time half-listening and half-digging in his old sandbox.



We treated ourselves to some luscious sheep's cheese:



...some roasted asparagus from the farmer's market:



...and some perfectly-ripe local strawberries:



P.S. Many of the pictures were taken by now 8yo Son.

Fair Trade has been one of my "issues" for several years! Glad to see this!

Glad you had a lovely day! There's a great sage near me over in Clarksville and the food is terrific - even for this non-vegetarian, LOL!
Also grateful for your entry on fair trade. Wonderful!
Take care,
