As if wild roses and honeysuckle perfuming the air aren't enough to make us giddy, the lavender is budding and waving it's fragrance outside and in the kitchen as well. Miss Lavenderina (my doll) is as small as my thumb but climbed right in. She is what got me out in the lavender patch. I stirred up a quarter batch of lavender cookies. Drizzled Lemon frosting on and some lemon zest and they were gone just like that. Delicious. As each thing comes into season it's fun to make something on the spur of the moment to enjoy the fresh ingredients. These couldn't have been fresher.
We had two tornado watches today. The creek is roaring, but all of the plants and shrubs are happy for the rain and cooler weather. And we still have electricity! Yes! There are quite a few homes without it due to severe thunderstorms and downpours.
