A New Perspective
We are getting some new windows this week. The original windows to our 1928 home no longer function efficiently (did they ever?). Draperies rustle in the gentle breeze -- when the windows are closed! Our windows never would have been classified as "energy saving" windows. So, this week I took down the linen roman shades I made and anything hanging on the walls near the windows that came out. I have cleaned my rooms, over and over; only to have to clean the rooms again today when the workmen leave for the last time. But, before they are gone, they will also put new glides on my very old kitchen drawers. That is almost worth more to me than the new windows.
With one of the windows removed from our bedroom, I had a beautiful view of the garden below. I took photos from an angle I had never photographed from before. The blue cabbage are truly stunning. Right now I'm feeling like that may be the only thing we will be eating from my garden. The days have been strangely cool, and altho' I have hundreds, yes hundreds, of tomatoes dangling from my 25 heirloom tomato plants, they are hanging there green and don't seem to be in any hurry to ripen. And, in addition to that, I have been trimming leaves with blight daily. If I'm not eating fresh garden tomatoes soon, it won't be pretty. You won't want to read what I will be writing.
So, with workmen in my kitchen again today, my range will be inaccessible. I do have plans for baking this weekend... if I'm not busy painting windows.

You have an absolutely beautiful garden.
