The Anatomy of a Perfect Day

May 18, 2009Family Uncaged

Admiring the flowers

A laughing me

A funny husband

A goofy girl

A thinking boy

A happy teen

A smiling dog

A posing cat

A harvesting of potatoes

A reach-for-the-sky hollyhock

The first bloom of lavender

Our vining house

A plot of earth

A pan of garden beets

A dish of new garden potatoes with herbs from the garden

Orange mint ice tea brewing (mint from the garden)

And voila! Dinner: beet/orange/walnut salad with citrus vinaigrette, new potatoes in herbs, chicken spinach sausages, orange mint tea. The end of a perfectly beautiful Texas spring day.
