Hope everyone is fine and doing well...
Summer is having her last fling here in the Maritimes of Canada and what a beautiful day we had today...
Just perfect weather..
Not too hot or cool but Fall is certainly on it's way..
I love the Spring but find the Fall has a very creative influence on me.. I just want to be making and doing.. smile..
Here in St. Martins the village built benches for folks to sit on during the Summer and on each side is an edible garden..
They are lovely and across the street from our cottage is the one with Nasturtium flowers, herbs, tomatoes, blueberries, kale, beans and peas and such..
You are invited to pick a veggie, herb or whatever as long as you leave some for others..
I picked 10 blossoms and made a vinegar..
I make several different kinds each Fall to carry me through the Winter for salads and greens and such..
Nasturtium Vinegar tastes kind of peppery and is delicious..
Very easy to make as you just place them in a jar and cover with white vinegar for a couple of weeks..
Strain through a cheesecloth and use..
It turns a most beautiful orange shade in a couple of days..
I am getting ready to close my shop..
This weekend will probably wrap it up and I am happy about that..
We still had stuff in the barn from when I first started out and took a huge load over today..
Tomorrow I hope to go over and sort through all the boxes and place it about and price it..
Everything is almost all 50 percent off and has been moving along very well..
I have been pickling a bit and today I finished up my Pumpkin Flavors Potpourri...
It is very pretty and smells nice and spicy..
I have also been trying to enjoy my last days by the Sea..
I miss the Bay of Fundy so much when we go home,,
It is a part of me even though I do look forward to going home and getting things back to normal..
It has been a wonderful Summer with our grandsons visiting quite a bit and other lovely company..
Last night I woke up very dizzy and did not have a good rest at all..
This morning I just sat on the stoop in my flannel pj's and housecoat and slept in the breeze..
On Sunday we had a nice day with our daughter as it was likely the last Sunday we will attend church with her and her family this Summer..
We spent the afternoon at her house and had a wonderful dinner..
Then sat outside and watched the sailboats on the river..
And then back to another wonderful service..
Our four older grandsons head to Montreal this weekend for a missions trip..
I pray God will bless and protect them..
School starts next week..
Oh my... where has the Summer gone? smile..
Well, dear hearts this has been nothing but a ramble and roll and once again I am falling short..
Take care and if you are in the area on the weekend drop by the House of Henry...
