Sea View, First Beans and Iris Siberica

30 Jun

1   A new beach for us today, Praa Sands, an enormous stretch of lovely soft sand. It looks like a good place to bring the Grandchildren.

2    We have harvested our first Broad Beans and Pak Choi and ate them within twenty minutes of picking! I love that feeling of satisfaction with growing , picking and then eating your own veggies that I share with Heidi of Lightly Crunchy

    photo one…….am JEALOUS

    photo two……good for you, still jealous here

    photo three…..reminds me of blue mountain pottery, once fired not that far from where me. If I knew it this wasn’t a leaf, I swear this the result of artist’s hand. Nature is an artist is she not?

    Beautiful photos! But I must say the beach is my favorite. Living in the mountains which is beautiful mind you – but we don’t get to enjoy the beaches and coasts of the east often. Thank God for pictures!

        I am always reminded of the song, but the sea, by the beautiful sea oh how happy I would be …. 😉 Your blog helps me to remember that there is still beauty to enjoy.

    Our Queen Ann’s lace is now in bloom.

    I know what you mean by ‘growing, picking, then eating your own’. My tomatoes, basil, and pole beans are looking good this year. Last year, drought prevented any crop from forming.

    Iris was one flower my mother loved, bless her soul.

    Thanks for those pictures and thoughts…Jim

      I’ve just looked up Queen Ann’s Lace – never heard it called that before. Do you know why it has that rather lovely name? 🙂
