Delightful Days


                                                            Available for purchase here

I love watching for signs of spring and feeling the warmth in the air. Our winters are relatively mild yet spring still holds special treats and a sense of all things new and fresh again. The older I become the more I savour each season, enjoying the delights unique to each passing one.













 Our first lavender flower for the season is adding it's wonderful bright purple to the garden.










Yesterday Miss N (14) treated us to a new recipe for lunch, a delicious Layered Ham and Cheese Pie. Very tasty!

I, too, love lavender and its lovely fragrance! And Miss N is definitely a wonderful cook already! I would love to have a plate full of that delicious looking Ham and Cheese Pie!!

Wow - great dof on those flower shots; can't imagine it being spring there - we're still in the throes of a hot summer.

Nice work there by Miss N too !

Hi there - I like the flowers a lot, and the pie looks even better! That could have been caused by a lack of dinner so far this evening!

I was rather impressed with the reef shots myself!

How totally beautiful your photos are, like the flowers are whispering "Hello Spring".

That is my favorite time of year and Fall too.

Another great looking meal from the rotating chefs you have there.

Beautiful photos, I love the second to last one of the lavender plant. Of course the pie has made me hungry for supper!

The lavender is so pretty, and the quiche looks delicious!

EEK! if you are thinking 'spring' does that mean I should be thinking 'autumn'?? :) That Ham and Cheese pie looks divine!

Seeing Each Day said...

All your shots of that lavender are delightful and so interesting to look at - would love to see that as a series on a wall or something similar. I had to smile about Miss N's pie as someone at lunch mentioned that Taste site today to me - being that I'm not a great cook I'm obviously slow off the mark because everyone around the lunch table nodded in acknowledgment of the site address! Miss N must have been so pleased with the result.

I love lavenders...you have photographed these beautifully.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Pretty flower shots. The food looks yummy.

Susi said...

I love some brilliant macro shots! How nice that your lavender is in bloom... mine isn't. But it's just planted about 2 months ago so I guess I'll have to have patience.

Ruthie said...

Wow, the lavender is just beautiful. And the pie looks delicious!
