Finding Fabulous on Friday

The crop at MIL's is bursting. Its here tht I do most of my cooking so I'm very happy that son and DIL have taken the time this year to plant. Leeks, cilantro, chives, parsley and basil and in abundance.
Basil pesto will be a well used recipe this summer. I've already harvested a hefty amount of basil and look how it has replenished. The aroma is incredible.
Its will be a delight to pick for supper, such freshness, so delicious. Tomatoes, zucchine, cabbage, peppers.   Can't wait till the tomatoes will be ready. Tomatoes, onion and basil salad and fresh Italian bread ... a favored meal in our house during the summer months.
The back porch is surrounded with such beauty, so pleasant to be out there.
And of course, delight inside ...
I've zigged, zagged and boggled to finish.

Lovely weather, windows open and house airing.  Housework, cooking with some afternoon crochet.  A good plan for the day.  The hooks are restless, just waiting to start a new ghan and doily.

Have a wonderful day.


  1. Your zig zag bobble came out so pretty glor. :)

  2. Those plants are so awesome! Wish mine looked like that, but out here in the hot desert I am lucky to have any plants grow at all!

    Love, love, love your blanket, so pretty Glor :)

  3. It's wonderful to have such an abundant crop of herbs and veges right at your doorstep! Enjoy! Happy crocheting. Tammy

  4. I love most everything fresh. MMMMM! The blankets are so pretty. Love the colors.

  5. OH i love parsley and basil!

  6. I love the show too (Dallas)! The opening music and all nearly choked me up. They didn't change anything. Wish they had cast the younger guys with slightly older men. Oh well.

    Love your basil. My favorite to grow is Rosemary, mostly because I have great luck with it being healthy and staying alive.
