Let's start with the pretty stuff first. One of the newest additions to our yard is the jasmine that he planted a few years ago on a trellis on our chimney. It took a few years for this climber to fill in, but this year it has peaked - it is full and lush, pretty much covering our entire chimney. Its beautiful white blossoms and dark green leaves are a delightful addition to the front of our house - but, the absolute best part is the sweet and lovely fragrance that bathes our entire front yard and envelopes you the minute you walk out of the front door. What a great way to start and end our day!
Not quite enough of berries to make strawberry shortcake yet - I can't wait for that. Oh well - guess we'll just have to enjoy these lovely red treats "au natural" - one at a time, just the way they are, straight from the garden. How sweet is that?
