Do you enjoy a good cup of tea? and a mystery to solve?  You will really enjoy the  Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs.  I love these sort of mystery books with characters you feel you get to know, with settings that you can easily visualize and imagine yourself in and the inclusion of recipes at the back of the book.

B for Bluejays


The bluejays are year round visitors to our garden feeders.  They mainly feed on nuts and seeds.  They love mailbox feeder which we fill will peanuts.  These birds certainly let you know when they are arriving in the garden.

Zucchini Casserole


Zucchini is just about in season.  Do you have an abundance of it from your garden?  Or do you buy fresh veggies from the farmers market?  This year I’m trying to grow my own.
