home grown

It has been nice to stop and breathe, have time to visit with Dot.I really enjoy going to her place, tidy but creative, colorful, but sentimental.She always has Chai on hand for me, served with a little treat, even if the visit was unplanned. She loves to nurture you, feed you well and will not let you go home without something that she has cooked, or grown.The lettuces that she gave me, come from a little stirofoam " raised bed" just outside her door. They looked exquisite and I marveled at their beauty.She said " I think this is a magical garden" and it is true: flowers everywhere and fruit covered trees surround you.
The salad was a delicious gift, heart tended, heart offered.I tasted the love in each bite.
