Bouquet of Wildflowers




Wildflowers are simple yet beautiful.



 This year I joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) with a cousin.




Each week we get to pick up organically grown veggies, herbs and some fruits.



The main farmer also throws in a bouquet of wildflowers each week. She said "Flowers make people happy."  She's right, too!



The blooms are so darned sweet and they last all week long.


I put them front stage and center in the middle of the kitchen table.



Aren't they pretty?

A Profusion of Pink.....Lilies




Oh, slow down the fast beating of my heart!  

There is a display of pink lilies in front of a grand old New England Inn, The Red Lion, located in a town called Stockbridge in Massacusetts.

Now I've posted about the Red Lion many times before, in all seasons,  because it's such a glorious place.

Such as here, here, and here.


But once again I've seen the sea of pink lilies in front of it. 

Posted about them once before here.

Ohhhhhh, so lovely.  Lilies are divine!  Pink  lilies simply enchant.


There are no words to describe such an incredible display of loveliness!

Marvelous Mermaid Cake



One of  my nieces is fabulously talented when it comes to cake decorating.

When one of her little nieces turned seven recently, she drew a picture of a mermaid in water.


That was the model for her birthday cake!

My niece, Amy, used deep colored frosting tint and her own incredible imagination to create a real mermaid marvel!


There were bubbles, jelly fish and even a crab, all in frosting, too!


Missy Mermaid, who graced the top of the cake, had scales and even a tiny belly button!


Even the inside of the cake had different shades of  "blue  water!" 



Very few bakeries could have made such a gorgeous cake in an affordable price range.


The birthday girl was thrilled.


Amy would like to open up her own little bake shop business in the future and I think she should go for it, don't you?
