Sunday was my favorite kind of day, sunny, breezy, cool and busy.
I was having friends for dinner and decided to make a spring lasagna with asparagus, spinach, zucchini,green onions and a bechamel sauce finished off with pesto, parmesan and the remainder of a tub of burrata. Gotta use the oven while we still can.
The 5 year old got steamed broccoli and rice.
The 17 month old got all the attention.
The kittens got out of the way.
Everybody helped. GG and the Lab came by Saturday evening and mowed and edged the farking lawn. You know you all missed a chapter in the lawn mowing saga but let's keep that for another day.
I raked (again), pulled more weeds and oh, pulled some more weeds.
And then I picked some flowers.
Forget me nots, violas, heuchera leaves and a dash of red honeysuckle vine.
It's the first spring for the lilac. I was hesitant about picking one of the few blossoms but then decided to give it up for Boston.
The fennel fronds and bokchoy bits are from the yard. The peony tulips and garden roses traveled from California to do their part.
As did a foxglove but the honeysuckle and fennel are home grown.
Please don't think that the cats were just lazing about in the sun while I did all the work.
They patrolled the perimiter.
And found a fly.
Watchdog never sleeps.
We're coming by the check out your house. Please have treats at the ready.
And I have a few slices of strawberry rhubarb pie for the early birds.
So link up and eat up.
