Make a seasonal center piece with fruit, greenery and flowers from your yard. (or your neighbor’s.) Simply place your findings in a bowl of water and arrange the way you like. When styling the center piece remember to group things in threes or odd numbers. Symmetry is not always pleasing to eye! Floral foam & picks are ideal but not necessary, as the life expectancy of your clippings may be short.
Leaving work, you know what you have to do, grocery shop, and what you want to do, enjoy the last of the sumer weather. Well, Tuesday evenings in Tremont you can do both! If you haven’t been to the Tremont Farmers’ Market yet, you are missing out. Each week I look forward to seeing what locally grown produce will be there. They have fresh fruit and vegetables, many specialty items and music. Tonight I will be making a spicy thai stir fry with my purchases.

As most you know, its the Sunday of summer. Thats right, August. Yes, Sunday can be relaxing, but you know what’s looming in the near future. Monday. So before winter is upon us we must make the most of our time outdoors. On a recent bike with the purpose of errands I noticed the tall grass by the side of the road. It reminds me of the earthy decorations that were all the rage in suburban homes in the early 1980s. Particularly, the large vase of prickly ornamental grass that I inaccurately dubbed “cat’s tails” my mother kept in our living room. There was nothing I could do except bring some home and put them in a vase.
