enjoying home

yesterday evening a cool breeze swept through our town & brought with it the most beautiful summer storm. we placed basil in his hutch before dark & sat all of the plants in the yard to take full advantage of the cool summer shower.

we enjoyed leek & potato soup for dinner.

& i added a bouquet of sage to the soup for a bit more of flavor.

i sliced cucumbers from the garden's harvest to add to our feast. so crunchy & sweet.

luke brought home these beauties from the farm for me.
the chicken feathers will soon be made into earrings.

after dinner, we headed to the garden for some weeding & enjoying. we found this little guy tucked under a tomato leaf, chomping on our healthy plant.

this week has been a relief from the gloomy cloud that seems to have been hovering over my mental state. i am thankful for this peace. daily, i am reminded of the privilege to live such a comfortable life even when it isn't necessarily deserved. friends, how are you doing?

love,
natalie

I love that second photo!

May I ask what you do with your green tomatoes? I had to remove a few branches from my tomato plants after a big storm and have a bowl full of them but am not sure what they could be used for other than pickling or frying. Maybe you can enlighten me!

We had a some of that lovely storm up here too - wasn't it such a nice reprieve from all this heat? You're attitude towards life and uncanny ability to find breathtaking beauty (and capture it!) in things that most people would pass right by is a true gift! Love and miss you!
