imagine my surprise when walking around the side of our house where mint and lily of the valley duel most of the season….there on a trellis in the center amongst the seed heads
… while considerably smaller than the first spring flush of blooms …
… back in May
ONE perfect purple clematis blossom … it’s as if you could hear it screaming … I can do this one last time before cold weather comes!!!
I got so excited I nipped it off before you could see it on the vine, the sun was shining a bit too brightly anyway for a good photo … yah … that’s my story and I’m sticking to it
Earl Grey used to be my black tea of choice, but after a trip to Ireland some years ago, Irish Breakfast Tea won me over … Trader Joes has their brand of Irish Breakfast Tea that comes in Decaf and Regular
oh and I must tell you about the sesame treat next to the gorgeous raspberries if you haven’t tried it already… it’s called a Sesame Crepe (no eggs at all) made in Viet Nam … it’s pretty high in calories darn it all … I mention this because it is not hard to polish off the package of two … they are divine (yup … also from Trader Joes)!
