Joys Along My Summer Drive

I took a leisurely drive East on Friday to go to the magnicient farm stands to get fresh peaches and blueberries. Taking advantage of the farms this time of year is like gold to me. Fruits and vegetables are so fresh and tastey. Delectable. I get enough for a few days and repeat the process so I can go off on another farm jaunt! Did I mention the banana bread? Or the chocolate cookies freshly baked? Or the jars of rasberry jam?

Then there are the flowers! Bright sunflowers, colorful zinnias, mixed arrays of floral eye candy.I came home with purple and white statice that I can have dry out and last me until next year. That is, unless one of my cats decide that it makes a good nibble. Why do cats do that???

To top off my beautiful day on the North Shore of Long Island, I stopped in to "The Modern Snack Bar ", a flash from the past family run restaurant where the waitresses wear white uniforms and everything is home cooked. I had the most delicious broiled flounder, mashed potatoes and cole slaw. Yummo! My tummy was full, my eyes were pleased and I had a car full of fresh fruits and veggies.
Try and get out and about in your towns and support the local farmers.
Question: I try to put my pictures in between my writings but they all come out grouped together. Any suggestions, blog pals?

Beautiful Lavender

Breathe in deeply! Feel relaxed? It is the smell of fresh lavender wafting through the air. Nothing is more comforting than the smell of fresh lavender. Recently I took a trip out on Eastern Long Island to one of my favorite spots: Lavender By The Bay . Fields and fields of fresh lavender; a picturesque shop filled to the brim with lavender products, sprigs of hanging lavender, bouquets of lavender, lavender soaps and honey, etc. You could just swoon taking it all in. If you are out on Long Island, stop by and enjoy the experience. Take home nature's herb for relaxation. Delightful. I am sure wherever you live, an herb farm is close by. Just breathe in deeply!

The Polka Dot Rose customers will each receive an organza bag stuffed to the seams with fresh lavender from Lavender By The Bay free with purchases over $20.00. (While supply lasts)
Lavender bath shower gel and body cream from SwissJust.
