Red, Green and Rust

Get your Pharm Phresh Photos here! Finally after 4 days without power followed by much welcomed rain, I took a walk around outside and snapped some photos. I'm realizing there's actually a color scheme here on The Pharm. Can you see it?

Sorry about the duplicate photos - I sort of went willy nilly with the new software I downloaded (Comic Life for Mac). I will try not to abuse it - I've only got 30 days on the free trial version. I'm still trying to learn the art of restraint. For now, it just feels good to throw it all out there.

Lunch for One lunch and yes, I ate every last bit of it. Even tipped the plate up and drank the juice that was collected in the bottom of the plate. Thanks to Judy Wise for this delicious food inspiration. What I didn't already have in the 'fridge I went out and picked from the garden. THE GARDEN! Yes, I went out and picked food from my garden for lunch! I realize this might not be such a newsworthy event for some of you but it absolutely tickled me to no end.

Okay, I only picked the basil and curly parsley but it still counts, right? :-)

The tomato (yes, that is only half of ONE tomato), cucumbers and red onions are all compliments of our amazing CSA organic gardeners. They are only 2 people but they grow food for something like 30 families on 2 acres. I enjoy being able to spend even just a few minutes over there to sit in the rocking chairs under the porch and catch up while I get my goodies.

The amaranth has gone to seed but I love how the rich deep color contrasts with the blue sky and green corn stalks. Apparently, chicks love amaranth. I wonder if their eggs will come out pink?

Here's a lovely parting shot of the sun coming up over the trees this morning around 6:30am. The fog was trapped in a field and I pulled over to snap a quick shot on my way home from Casa de Waffle. I knew I needed a hearty (as in heart stopping?) breakfast before watering the garden this morning. Took me a couple of hours to get everything watered but I was done well before my 10am watering ban cut off and plenty of time to greet the appliance repairman at 9am. Oh such is the life of a Tiny Pharm Wife.
