Please first of I am so sorry for all the typos! I am trying to get used to (as my dear friend calls them biFUCKals ….and they are horrible whomever invented these wanted me to die on the stairs..vomit in public and feel otherwise humiliated at the fact I can no longer look right in someones eyes???
So pardon me please while my body betrays me and in spite of a very good education just ignroe all the typos and errors in grammer …
All finished with the figs…to quickly I am afraid ..however my husband bestowed upon me a most wonderful gift of a Panache Fig…my friend in the UK spoiled herself with one last year and I instantly became so jealous I could not stand not having one of my own!
her is a link to a picture of what it will be ..they look like little hot air balloons http://www.bayflora.com/panachee.html
If you look in the corner you can see my panache fig back there ..it is tiny but it will grow I am sure of it!
I have always wanted a cabin in the woods ..I feel like I have one with this sun porch ..solarium ..whatever it is really cozy and feels perfect ..now if the old man could just stop trying to make it BEYOND perfect!
you are not allowed to judge this chair ..it was hand made in the Phillipines in the early 70s …I just adore every detail including the gold plate on the back with the name of the shop and who made it …my butt is not as big as the indentation that is from sitting cross legged sideways if I want to! …This chair is just big enough to flop in, I have logged numerous naps in it … and it gives me a perfect view of all the domain in my front AKA nursery garden..it is where everything I beg, borrow and snip gets started and then I divide and move them to other parts of the garden..lots of berries currents a 5 way plum a fig …two concored grape arbors…what esle ..blueberries, strawberries, black currents ..every herb you can imagine that will grow here is growing in this garden …and lots …lots ..lots of flower….there is also an Alberta spruce that will be turned into a giant garden gnome this year ..
I have watched aphids hit the plum tree ..then ladybugs hit the aphids..then a family of junkos were raised on the ladybugs…just amazing ..
This is the other side it is still has to be sorted out ..that is my very cool foot stool hand made in North Carolina a very long time ago ..it fits your feet perfectly to nap in the preveiously mentioned chair …
I want to retire so badly I dream of drifting away into senile bliss on a trail that leads from this porch to a path and through all four of the gardens
I could not be happier he is here ..when he croaks it radiates through the house ..I feel so lucky!
seriously how funny is it that I have a “rain” barrel on the Salish Sea??? (I actually have four of them) so far I just drain them now and then ..no reason to irrigate here this year!
rattlesnake and runnerbeans Sam’s runner beans ..what a wonderful dinner this made and there is nothing like watching a four year old burst with joy everytime he opens a scarlet runner or wiggles the the rattlesnake beans and hissing at me 🙂
not to mention a very proud little boy
there is also a full head of garlic in that dish…good for your heart!!
I cook ..he builds ..it works really well
red rice, semolina bread, roasted purple yams and banans ..and green chile stew
I am so bummed he will not get to pick it!
