Just A Few More

Well, before the rain hit over the last couple of days we managed to get our fire pit area cleaned up and set up for the summer.

The perennial garden is ready to go. We dug out the spreading juniper in the center and I planted annuals instead. Hopefully giving a bit of colour for the entire growing season.

I have always planted my herbs in containers on the front patio. Harvey wanted to save me watering time, so he built me some benches from leftover deck building and placed them at one end of the garden.

I am loving this. When Harv waters the garden the herbs are watered and when it rains they all get watered, whereas before most of them needed me to go out with a watering can.... They were under the eaves and didn't get wet at all.

When we visited Spain, we got to try all sorts of interesting foods. Tapas being one of them and something Harvey and I just loved.

One item was cheese filled phyllo pastry filled pockets. While I could not get mine to look like those beautiful round pockets, I did manage to make these square ones.

While they weren't as pretty to look at, they tasted just as awesome!

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
