Home eggs. Thank you for gathering them and bringing them to us, Lizzie. So many possibilities.
Yes, it’s the moon AND fireworks at the same time. Columbus Ohio with the family last week for the gigantic fireworks display. We had a nice evening together.
it’s the annual effort to improve my fireworks photography.
And I am celebrating another year with my Fourth of July birthday today.
Happy Birthday to me.
Last night a friend brought over some fragrant fresh basil from the garden.
I felt inspired.
The recipe I used called for
2 c fresh basil leaves 1/3 c pine nuts 1/2 c Romano or parmesan cheese 1/2 c olive oil 3 cloves of garlic. Another friend’s flowers from her garden.
Such generous friends.
It might be time for new red and white checkered table cloth. I hemmed this fabric in 1974 and the red has faded to almost pink.
Even if it rains, the front porch offers shelter and a wonderful place to watch the downpour.
Come January we’ll be longing for these tomatoes. The taste of summer.
My friend R stopped by the other evening and shared these fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes. Just picked!
Olive oil, chunky chopped onions and a couple of garlic cloves. Threw in the remaining cherry tomatoes (we’d been popping them in our mouths, unadorned)
Black beans and rice. Mmmmmmmm.
Uncle Frank gets a lot of satisfaction from restoring vintage cars,
He is a grand master of restoration.
He was showing Michael and Jack how the car lowered down

Thanks to P and J we now have a “new” table for the front porch. Thank you for the upgrade from our little plastic circle.
Steve took this photo on my phone of our Spaghetti Arugula and tricolor corn supper.
Fineview is certainly named appropriately. It is a fine view from this vantage point.
A neighborhood I’d not visited before…went there with a fellow artist J. on Saturday night. Pittsburgh from the North Side of the city.
