Perennial Parade
First, the scented lilacs, then the daffodils and peonies. Tulips. Daylilies. Iris. It's the springtime flower parade.     Today, it's the last day of my ruffling iris. Tomorrow, white hydrangea promise to show up in my garden..

Morning Light
 I cut peonies in the garden at 5:30 this morning.   I managed an arrangement under the dining stable chandelier (oh, look, the beads  from Christmas are still hanging there) just as the morning light arrived.   Have a memorable Memorial Day weekend.

Cheese Straws
Paging through Barefoot in Paris by Ina Garten, I felt bold enough to explore puff pastry by purchasing readymade puff-pastry sheets from the grocery store freezer. I also watched a few youtube.com videos with puff pastry in action.   First out: Cheese Stra...

Bouquet Garni
It's been so cold that I left the puff pastry behind in the freezer to make soup and stew instead, flavoring them with a French standard:  bouquet garni .    I also filled a few appealing little sacks discovered at the grocery store with dried herbs.  They'...
