The weather is perfect!

In this perfect, perfect to me anyway, Coastal Southern California “May Gray” damp weather today I fondly recall being in similar weather in Ireland, and the feeling was only heightened by a visit yesterday to a monthly Valley Center, CA antique sale held in an old historic barn . . .

Is it “foraging” if it’s my own yard?

Heard of pajama foraging? No? Well read it here first. I wander about my own yard in the morning in my pajamas gathering bits of herbs, and pieces of greens, some fruits, vegetables, edible flowers and sometimes an egg that all end up making for a very satisfying lunch. Here’s cooking from scratch, foraged for one!

Nov. 30th, 2018 is the 730th consecutive #dailyshotofwhiskeykitty

Happy second #dailyshotofwhiskeykitty anniversary everyone! Here’s some of the backstory in case you missed it on the first anniversary of the #dsowk

Rain!

Rain in May ~ there is no greater garden joy for parched Southern California gardens and gardeners. My hubby installed rain chains at the corners of our home as a part of the gutters and they are the best water feature ever! In the rain I can watch and listen to them for hours.
