I'M THINKING GREEN...



I WAS ALWAYS told to eat my greens so I sliced up this delicious masterpiece (courtesy of Victoria magazine)...a mixed greenery...a fruitopian dream...

A fresh taste of lime and a hint of creme de menthe bring out some great flavors and also a great aroma that can't be missed. What a sweet treat for this gorgeous first day of September in southern New England! Click HERE for the recipe.


And my 'Queen Elizabeth' rose treated me with its very first bloom of the season...although it's a late bloom there is certainly no gloom with this beauty!


Happy Labor Day everyone!

Connie, that rose is just luscious. Can't think of another word better than that. And every time I see your photos of food, I think, this girl should be photographing food displays for magazines. You're very good at it!

Hi Connie...just stopping by briefly to say hello. I hope that all is well for you and Joe. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers...and your continued prayers as I recover from my liver surgery. I've missed everyone and your emails/comments have kept me going. *hugs*

Hi, Connie, thanks for you comment. My kitties (we have two) are indoor/outdoor cats. They go in and out whenever they please and can get someone to open the door all day, but stay in at night. We don't have a pet door, because I don't want them bringing in "critters"!
