Corner View: Summer

Wasn't sure what I was going to do for this post, then Hadley gave us this GIANT sunflower from her garden as a thank-you for taking her to LAX. Blogging problem solved. Thanks, Hadley!

It was so beautiful Monday night (when I wrote this & took these shots), we ate out on the back porch again. I made a simple meal of cheese ravioli (from Trader Joe's) tossed with roasted eggplant that I had prepared earlier in the day, fresh herbs from the garden, tomato sauce, & freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Cut up another cucumber from the garden and dressed it with a little fresh lemon juice, white balsamic vinegar and sea salt.

Happy Summer.

The sunflower is gorgeous. They look so beautiful even when they start to dry out, so you can enjoy it for a long time. We have one sunflower we are cultivating in a pot right now - Ruby planted it at our tots group. I'm hoping for a big flower to take lots photogaphs of over the coming months.
PS - your past dish sounds great too.
