Around the corner from the new shelf in my studio is this water color of an angel. I have her just inside the back door which goes out into the garden. It is still early morning but reflections glimmer on the glass surface on top of the painting.

Outside, an ornamental glass bauble "dragonfly" in the garden flits over the basil and French marigolds.

A small summer squash is growing under large green leaves.

A "black" ornamental pepper plant hides the garden "caulifower" teapot. One round red "pepper" shows the effect of all the recent rain. It is splitting. [Click on the photo for a closer view.] Our weather has been glorious for the last few days, sunny and cool. The garden is still producing cucumbers and ripe tomatoes.

This is a fun week here. Even though I am working for the next 3 days, my mother is here for a visit. She enjoys seeing the sewing and quilting which I do in conjunction with my job.

Our son, Andrew and his dog are stopping by for a few days on his way back to his school. This will call for my cooking and baking some special meals. We started with the French yogurt cake last night, which is also making a delightful breakfast this morning!

Have a good time with your mom. That cake sounds delicious....I jotted down the recipe to try when it's cooler.

I'm hungry just hearing the name.

Isn't it fun to have a parent look at what you've made and enjoy it? I'm thinking it would be. And if they could tell you that as well! Ah! Joy!

Sounds like a delightful week. Enjoy your time with your Mom and all that yummy food!

I love the angel painting, Lila. Did you paint it? Your garden looks so nice!

lila said...

Yes, I painted her...sort of a Pre Raphaelite look.
