Beautiful glorious Sunday to you all!! we took a walk today and I had my camera in hand to snap some photos for you all..and then thought about doing textures of our home, walk etc..something different then the textures we have been seeing and enjoying...out tomatoes are finally ripening up and last night we had a caprese salad with our big beef steak tomatoes and our fresh basil..OH MY GOSH was it ever good...took us right back to living in Italy..we couldn't get enough of those and we haven't had anything since we have been back in 8 years..
so yesterday we headed to Costco and bought the mozzarella di bufala and it is the best stuff we have ever eaten aside from living in italy Naples to be exact and getting it fresh from the sourse..this is shipped here from italy..so if you all love mozzarella and have a costco this is the kind to buy..not the cows kind..add some great olive oil, salt and pepper and tomatoes, and basil..oh and you gotta have the parma proscuitto...it is to die for and it capped our evening...:)
our hopps..they are getting so big and it won't be long probably in a month that we will be harvesting them..
this is my wonderful Friend Doreen and Harrys house..she is the one that gave me all the beautfiul plants that are in my yard..her yard is magical and a slice of heaven...so I took some photos as we started our walk..they live about a block from us...
this is a little seating area underneath all the hydrangas and other beautiful flowers just to sit and take a rest and enjoy the beauty..
this is their "back forty" as they call it.....more earthy and natural as they call it..the deer sometimes take up residency there..
these sunflowers were huge..like dinner plate huge..wish I could have got a full on photo of that one..;)the leaves were huge too..
and last but not least one of the 2 pumpkins in my garden that are starting to get their color..don'tcha just love it..I love the twist in the stem too...well I am off to get ready for church..have a wonderful rest of your day...taking the new car to church..I got to drive it yesterday for the first time...it is so comfortable..but I still prefer the automatic...:)
