I admit that I’m a bit of a recluse (cleverly disguised as a social butterfly) – but I do love my friends. I am blessed a thousand times over with good, lifetime friends – people who are simply amazing.
Today I went out for a morning ramble with two new friends – or, more accurately, people I believe are becoming friends.
It was a slow amble up and down the trails of Bannock Point – and we talked and relaxed and had fun and laughed and made a date for a second outing.
And then – out in the garden in the hot sun, doing what is necessary. So the weeding that HAS to be done – and mostly watering and harvesting.
I love the way this garden looks. It’s both productive and beautiful. Flowers everywhere – food everywhere. It is an evolving, living thing, nurtured by Simon and me – loved by us – and it’s thriving. Today’s harvest includes potatoes, peas, herbs, broccoli and garlic scapes. The only food I bought at the grocery store this week is mushrooms.
Tomorrow – Whitewater Canyon with an early morning start.
And contemplating Cathedral Lakes – or maybe another overnight with Simon at Motherlode Lakes.
