Full of Grace - Firsts

- First salad straight from the garden.  I always forget just how sweet and satisfying fresh from the garden is.

- First weekend at the lake. All the basic camp opening is done and it is ready for heavy duty relaxing.




- First tour of the lake in my kayak. Not too bad - a little shoulder pain, but otherwise feeling stronger than I have in a long time.




- First lily pads starting to bloom.  As beautiful as they are when they are fully open in lotus, I do love how they first look like lollipops all over the lake.



- First of many, many naps in the hammock looking at this.  

After such a long, cold winter, recuperating from medical weirdness, this all feels so, so good.

    1. Oh yeah! And still playing "what does that cloud look like?"

      Very recuperative.

  2. Looks wonderful to me! I miss my hammock - one piece of the stand broke and I have had it on my list to fix for the past two summers... Sigh...

    1. I still need to learn how to gracefully mount and dismount. I often wind up flipped on the ground.

  5. I love that first salad. And everything tastes so much better. We had ours a few weeks ago and I kept thinking that the lettuce was so sweet,so delicious...

  6. That's it! The lettuce is so sweet compared to what you buy in the market. I'm surprised that we are so much behind you in harvesting. Or maybe I just got my stuff in late. But tomatoes are forming and I am giddy with anticipation.

  7. Love your firsts. I agree that garden veggies are so delicious in comparison to anything else. Love them.

  8. I so agree about fresh from the garden veggies. I love eating a tomato right off the vine, still warm from the sun.
