Aren't they beautiful? We enjoyed them Thursday night as we feasted on leftovers before we left for Grandma and Grandpa's. These were courtesy of our CSA! I truly love a beautiful bouquet of flowers and have rearranged them again, now that we are home.

We had lots of fun and E. got to try out her new bike with training wheels- she did very well.
We even got to go to some beautiful waterfalls. We went to Twelve Foot and Eight Foot Falls. Really quite astoundingly beautiful!
Here is some lovely purple basil that I whirred up with some olive oil right away and put into small containers to freeze for the winter. We shall feast on pesto come winter!
We also got some lovely red onions...
A bunch of tomatoes (which I plan to blanch, remove the skins, dice and freeze).
Next is a lonely green pepper that I took a picture of before I found his brethren... but my pictures of them turned out blurry...
Some yellow and green (aka zucchini) squash
Some potatoes......and supper last night- pesto! With some splendid spring greens salad and cucumber and green peppers. We also got garlic, cucumber and wax beans!

Read "The Hours" by Michael Cunningham. Thought it was good, really resonated with parts of it, liked the little connecting details between the different stories, makes me want to read Woolf. Have started "Where Angels Fear to Tread" by E.M. Forster and am enjoying it.

Tried to fix the wavyness of the edging on the blanket, but no go. So, slapping on a garter border, ho! Tried it with just one repeat and it seems fine, will have to block the s@!# out of it, though.
