In My Kitchen July 2012
We are now well into July and I'm amazed that the months are passing so quickly. Next month in August it will be a year since I embarked on this blogging adventure and I'm delighted to be able to share my passion for fresh produce and cooking with so many new friends. One of those friends is Celia, at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, who brings together cooks and food enthusiasts from across the globe with her In My Kitchen posts.
Celia has very kindly dedicated her July post to another of our friends... fellow food blogger, Barbara Harris (Winos and Foodies), who passed away recently. I always looked forward to hearing from Barbara and enjoyed reading her posts. The one that has stayed with me is this one where Barbara shared a photograph of the first New Year's Eve that she and Bryan, her husband of 32 years, celebrated together.
Farewell to a very gracious, courageous and beautiful lady. May the angels always watch over you.
Since the passing of my parents and two older brothers, I have thought of wrens as little angels, and I feel blessed to have a family or two of them in my garden. On a sideboard in my kitchen is a collection of blue wren treasures (see above) that include gifts from beloved friends. The little tapestry was from my friend, Christine; and the yellow picture was painted by the mother of another friend, Lee (who I haven't seen for a long, long time). Peter gave me the little ceramic tile as a gift after a Summertime visit to the Australian National Botanic Gardens when we were first dating.
