Our drive to Patagonia

Hello to our blog friends, Last weekend we took a drive to beautiful Patagonia.
We went to a magical place, where we saw so many beautiful hummingbirds. Some were golden brown, some had brilliant turquoise chests,and some with violet crowns.
Some very generous people open their yard so that people from around the world can enjoy this wonderous specticle.

Down the road a bit we spotted some tissue paper flowers.
One last view as our day comes to an end.

We will see you soon!

A busy summer

Hello to all of our blog friends. Sorry about our absence but summer calls and we have been a bit distracted with outdoor activities lately. Herbs are so wonderfully refreshing on HOT summer days.
   The sunflowers have finally peaked and we have been gifting them to special friends. Here is one for you.
The wonderfully talented Lauren from Fair Rosamund made this cake from scratch and it tasted even better than it looks.
This homemade chocolate frosting was to die for, not too sweet, just right. And the fresh strawberries! Oh my!
Summer monsoons are on the way. Hip hip hooray! Less watering, more blogging. As for daisy, she 's feeling lazy. Who doesent, when it gets this hot.(110 in the shade). We hope your summer is fun and relaxing. You deserve it!
