Sunday it was a beautiful day
Warm and wonderful
Husband Jim and I decided to have Sunday Lunch
in the garden
We were in the midst of garden chores
(like the planting of my living wreath)
others not so much
(weeding the herb beds)
An easy lunch
Mostly in the oven
So we could work on chores
A provencal tablecloth from Williams Sonoma
The blue Asiatic Pheasant
which I bought, actually, for al fresco dining
But somehow we've turned it into our everyday plates
And a soft linen napkin
A habit we acquired while in Italy
a bottle of Pellegrino
The Spring pansy wreath
which encircles my newest concrete statue
who's holding a wee green fern.
A dinner of ham, asparagus and a tian
served family style
A small ham
(it is just the two of us after all)
And a tian of zucchini, tomatoes and potatoes
sprinkled with cheese
Sigh -- no dessert
But there will be cake at tea!
And then four hours later . . .
the storm came!
