Some Like It Hot
This would not be me, nor the Lab. Good reason why I haven't published any food porn , as a coworker calls it, this week.
Too hot to turn on a stove. But I have a craving for some carbs so I'm cooking up a little fusilli and will toss it with some garden tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper, olive oil, crushed red pepper and mozzarella cheese.
While the water boils ( I shudder even as I write the word boil) I'm out in the garden picking basil and admiring the few plants that are thriving in this heat.
The limelight hydrangea is just beginning to open and and already living up to its name. I have succulents everywhere, in the window boxes, in pots and in hard to water corners of the garden. All beauty, no maintenance, like us, no? Agastache, verbena bonariensis, African foxglove, nicotiana , everyone happy as clams.
Our next door neighbor is also gone this week so I am the water bearer for two gardens. As I believe blogging can be a synonym for procrastination, I'll be off to do my best imitation of an Aquarian
Even though I'm actually a Virgo.
