There is a cool breeze blowing outside... probably our last one until October. Summer is on it's way. What happened to spring you ask? Well I live in Texas and it doesn't last for long. The weather the past few days has been great for gardening. Just look at my garden a few weeks ago and then look at it now. The diffence is amazing. My basil is 5 times the size it was then. I love the spring, but I am mourning the end of the cool weather, and dreading the heat that will stick around longer than I'd like it to.. the heat that will wither my herbs if I forget for one day to water them.
Don't get me wrong. I love the river! I love swimming and I love the time I have for vacationing and fun. I just wish the cold fronts would show their face more often. So in honor of the cooler temperatures I decided to bake some bread and make some soup. I took a trip out the the garden to gather some herbs and snap some photos... and then back to the kitchen.
