Two Tuesdays - Collage #17

2012 Collage Challenge

© K. Johnson 'Summer Plans' - 7"x 5" collage on paper

Inside an old gardening book I found at an estate sale a couple months ago were some folded up hand written notes from someone’s garden plans. As I was cutting and gluing these found notes into this collage I was wondering about what plants were their favorites and what their garden might have looked like.

I’m forever jotting down ideas for future garden plans. Some so grand that I’ll probably never get to them but it’s always fun to have a vision and dream a little.  

All the collages in this series can be seen here.

Peaches - Pick Your Own ...

I've picked strawberries and apples at those "pick your own" places many times but I had never picked peaches.

A few Sundays ago my Mom and I went to Scott's Farm in East Lyme, CT.
 It was a beautiful not too hot sunny morning and we had the whole orchard to ourselves. 

They are such beautiful trees with their long slender glossy leaves.

I thought I might make a peach pie but I never did get around to that. Before the peaches over ripened I peeled and chopped a few to put in the freezer for making smoothies. Coconut water, almond milk and peaches in the blender - easy as can be!
