I love the simple beauty of this photo! These paperwhite flowers are blooming along my front fence area. They are small, almost unnoticeable. But there is something so endearing about them! I feel calmer, more centered just gazing on them….A space of peace in a busy weekend.
Tonite for dinner I cooked a homemade pizza with a pesto sauce made from the abundance of basil in my garden. It’s gotten a bit colder lately and I’m guessing that the basil might not last too much longer (I usually lose it in late December) so I figured it was time to use it up! I also picked the last of my lettuce for our dinner salad. Most of the plants bolted in the heat last week so there were just a few good leaves left per plant.
In my haste to get the dinner put together, apparently I didn’t wash the lettuce as well as usual. Both John and GameBoy found small snails in their salad. Eeuuuuwwww….I am having lots of snail problems this year–any thoughts on natural snail deterrents? (btw, I promise if you join us for dinner at our home, I’ll make sure to triple wash the lettuce!)
