One summer day, walked through a spacial event “Frida Kahlo : Art, Garden, Life” Exhibition at New York Botanical Garden. Love to find bright sunflowers stand in front of vivid blue color wall. It is summer!
I am ready for edible summer flower pickling. Beautifully rolled up Hibiscus buds got picked at summer gardens. I would appreciate more…late season, for sure..remember gorgeous summer time.
My summer seasonal drink, Shiso Juice (Perilla Juice). I do alway have them in the garden or I will says they are always there once you plant them, every seasons. Enjoys to watch to grow and delight to use various menu!
Southern Magnolia ‘Edith Bogue’
Elegant tree, handsome leaves (shiny leathery hairy…) and STUNNING flowers. It makes me stand strong.
My pickle season starts. Can’t wait to pack them into the jars. They always surprised me and bring me back season’s memory. Garlic scapes pickling with plum vinegar and my grandma’s homemade soy sauce.
always look for a place for relaxing…it could be a just little thing makes you.
Delight to find yellow wild indigos ( Baptisia sphaeroocarpa ‘Screamin Yellow’) at east end of New York. They must love a sunny spot and the sea breeze like us!
