It's getting to be a jungle out there!
We've been enjoying giant garden salads for a few weeks now; they are on the menu every evening. We've been having a wired mix of weather: cool rainy days mixed with cooking-hot days. Apparently it is a combination the garden likes, 'cause it's taken off and I can hardly keep up with the weeds.
I can't get the whole garden in the photo from my upstairs window, but here is a partial view. In just a few short weeks the greenery has gone from this:
to this!We're going to have some serious space issues, I can see.
Not everyone has to have space issues, though. Here's a cute birdhouse in my garden that is looking for some tenants. I comes complete with a tin roof and house number! Isn't it darling? My dad made it, but I didn't get it up in time for nesting season. Next spring!
I’ll leave it at that for today because I am sooo busy getting ready for the arrival of my parents this evening; they are traveling all the way from
Remember my trip out West last summer? Well, now it's their turn to come visit us, meet the new baby and enjoy some of Montreal's unbeatable summer festivals.
Anyway, their visit is quite the celebrated event around here and in keeping true to my family’s traditions, wining and dining are going to be front most and center of their stay.
Stay tuned because we have a few weeks of good eating ahead of us and I'll try to get a few recipes out.
Have a great week everyone!
