My supposedly orange packet of cosmos (they were a freebie from my mother-in-law) turned out to be lovely shades of purple!
I'm officially a huge cosmos fan. However, they are tall! I shouldn't have mixed them with the zinnias but rather planted them behind. You live, you learn. ;o)
A little sampler pack of baker's twine on wooden spools arrived in the mail.
Ever heard of veryjane? It's kind of like a groupon for etsy-styled stores.
I've found a lot of neat little deals through them.
This would be one:
They're almost too cute to use. I'm pretty sure I'll be a twine hoarder.
Now these aren't my "Best Brownies" but they are very good!
A Paula Deen "Chocolate-Caramel-Toffee Brownie" or something like that.
They're chewy, and dense, and awesome (and I even left off the caramel!).
If you need the recipe let me know--I couldn't find a link anywhere.
The sunflowers began to bloom . . .
. . . and subsequently snap off (at least this one).
I love sunflowers.
And I was thinking, a coral zinnia in an aqua mason jar?
Ummm, yes! ;o)
