    Thank you... those daisies are sweet and very low maintenance :D

    Happy trying :)


    these are early spring bloomers :D
    I love to walk by my Lemon Meyer pot when its blooming... lemon flowers smell so sweet... despite the fruit though ;P

  6. What a simple delicious chicken dish Lisa! I learned something today - if I want to bake instead of deep fry, I should brown both sides of chicken, then put it in the oven. It makes sense because it's hard to make it nice golden brown color in the oven. Thanks for the tip! Your garden is beautiful and so as your pictures!

  7. The sourdough breadcrumbs made this extra special.
