Chocolate cake & the garden


I’ve come to the conclusion that few things bring the kind of joy that chocolate cake and a full garden can. My brother is growing all sorts of veggies from seed this summer – zucchinis, tomatoes, snap peas (pictured above), blueberries, and carrots! We picked the first of the snap peas yesterday and they were the juiciest, crispest, freshest peas I’ve ever had. Here are a few short quotes about the glories of nature that resonate with me:

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” Albert Einstein

“All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.” Marie Curie  

Much love,
