I just took this dessert out of the oven, had a small sample- and it is delicious. I also bought Moose Tracks ice cream to eat it with. What makes it even better is that the blueberries came from right around the corner, a U-pick place nearby. I wish the peaches were local as well, but they came from the grocery store; VT is still a week or so away from peach season.
I am enamored with this lily, I waited for what felt like WEEKS for it to open, and it did yesterday!

I can’t believe how quickly time passes.
We’ve been pretty busy around here, I’m excited because we are finally at a point where we are eating fresh veggies out of our garden! Most of the perennials around the house are blooming too. I got back from NY to see that I missed the peony entirely though. That was disappointing.

At first I thought I would use a nice picture of Gabe and I for this week’s post, but I’m at my parent’s for the long weekend and when I put these two ladies out together yesterday I thought they were a much better representation. Not that I don’t love my husband… Wren and Dream have been pasture buddies for 8 years, except for the time Wren had a baby. They scratch each other, and their stalls are right across the aisle from each other. As retired show horses/broodmares their days are spent munching grass outside. Always together.
One of the first “Garden Snippet” posts I made was also a milkweed, but I have such affection for the “weed” variety. It plays host to so many insects, not just the Monarch butterfly. Here is a moth and a small bee, both coming over the waxy flowers for nectar. This species is common to disturbed areas and meadows.
