Recipe for a Mindful Summer



Savour the sunshine,

feast on the breeze,

distil its essence and

learn how to squeeze

gallons of flavour

where ounces occur;

sprinkle this hour

with seasoning – and stir.


I love herbs. My dill patch is a good place to feast on the breeze as it releases its lovely summer scent…






In a Pickle

In a pickle, I must choose

Which to keep and which to lose,

Which to weed, and which to use

For a tasty treat.


Eyesight, don’t deceive me now,

Sweat, don’t drip from over brow,

I must save just dill somehow,

So pickles I can eat!

This photo isn’t incredibly exciting – who takes pictures of weeds?  But this little poem came to me as I was scrolling through my stash of garden shots, and I thought it was kind of cute!  🙂
