soup’s on

Wednesday, December 6th, 2006

Broccoli and Cauliflower soup served up in a pottery bowl made by Linda Hynes (see my previous post featuring one of her creations). Cold weather tasks such as cleaning up after an ice storm often work up an appetite. One of our favourite winter meals is Broccoli and Cauliflower soup. I made the first batch […]

favourite things

Friday, November 17th, 2006

Last post of the day. In lieu of Friday cat-blogging (as I don’t have a cat), it seems this is often my day for posting about Sabrina, or of something around the farm or house. Today, it’s a favourite porcelain bowl by Linda Hynes whose studio is located the Merrickville area. Highly functional, this covered […]

The frost is now heavy in the mornings. It won’t be long until thick ice forms over ponds and puddles.

memory flowers

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

In summer, I try to remember to bring flowers indoors so that we get as much enjoyment as possible from them while they’re in bloom. Sometimes the flowers are from the garden, and sometimes they’re wildflowers from the fields or the meadow which once was our yard. We’ve been here at the farm for many […]

more lovely green things

Friday, May 26th, 2006

Surprise! Today’s photos is *not* of an insect, bird, or mammal! A couple of days ago, I posted some photos of one lovely green thing, and today is another. I’m just about to begin a busy day of washing all of the windows, putting the screens in for the summer, and getting the sun porch […]
