Saturday Scene

I’m on my own today, Dennis is visiting his family for a week.  Neva and I are holding down the west coast fort…..and one of us had a big bath today.  Nice tongue Neva.

I watched birds from my chair on the deck….

After some housework and kitchen prep, I ventured out to Commercial Drive to get some groceries for the next week then home via Queen Elizabeth Park.  I was hoping to see the rose garden in it’s glory, but sadly it was past it’s prime.  That said, it was still pretty, and smelled BEAUTIFUL!  Here are shots from my afternoon…..

Last night, I harvested these baby beets from our community garden….

…today, the beets themselves were roasted and the greens were turned into beet green pesto.  I put them on a flatbread with a peach, some goat cheese, balsamic reduction and arugula…voila….dinner.  I love growing my own food.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone!
