I haven’t been cooking much due to being sick.  But I have finally had time to edit some beautiful snap shots I’ve taken while touring some gardens.  I thought I’d share them with you while I come up with some new creative dishes in the kitchen.


A beautiful variety of chicory that reminds me of black pearls


Pitcher plants are fascinating to me

Here’s a whole greenhouse full of pitcher plants!

white rose

Peak rose season is just starting to pass us by…

purple rose

…The best rose is the kind that smells like cheap perfume – heady and sweet…

smell me

…Have you stopped to smell a rose today?

    Beautiful picture, that first one! My chicories didn’t look nothing like that 😦

    Oh, my goodness! The chicory! Just gorgeous. I would love to grow that next year; do you happen to know what the variety was?

    I see I’m not the only fan of that chicory. The variety is ‘Fiero’ and seeds seem to be available here: 🙂

    Beautiful shots. I love the white rose. So sorry to hear you’ve been sick — hope you are finally feeling better!

    As always, Jen, the photos are so so beautiful. You have the knack of making the ordinary beautiful.

    Those are so beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing. It is always nice to stop and smell the roses – even if it is virtual!

    Pitcher plants are found in fairly nutrient-poor areas and have developed their carnivorous lifestyle as a way of supplementing their diet.
