Garden Memories



I spent some time this morning weeding in my rose bed, and it made me nostalgic for the flower beds I had created when we lived in Elizabeth, CO. Every time I added a new plant or rejoiced at the reappearance of a favorite perennial, I felt like an artist adding a stroke of color to my canvas. I love my flower beds here in Castle Rock, but they will never have the same meaning to me as those I left behind...

Yesterfood : Fresh Basil Pesto


Yesterfood : Fresh Basil Pesto: I just made this fantastic pesto. I only had enough basil leaves for half the recipe, but I'm hoping for enough more for another batch in the near future! We'll have it on some pasta tonight, along with some fresh zucchini from our garden.
