Buried Treasure

Finding treasures.... The other day I came across an amazing journal. It was written in 1805 and was kept on a journey on a boat from Ireland to an island south of there. Reading through it, and the descriptions is what was brought and even what they kept track of.... completely intrigued me.

pond juice

this "Pond Juice" drink was fabulous and it's the 'signature drink' at a local tavern. It is huge, and quite tasty. Doesn't seem like you are having a "drink" so it is kind of dangerous, although it wasn't strong. It reminded me of having the HUGE drinks of Long Island Iced Tea when I was at school in West Virginia, and we used to go out dancing at "the Stables" and would get blitzed! yeah... I was 19....

Wonderful Wisteria

I walked out of the barn today and was confronted with the most heavenly scent! I turned to the right, and found that it was coming from the beautiful vines that drape and envelop the little seating structure next to the entrance to the barn. It is so rustically beautiful. It always seems very grounding. I love this little, almost hidden, treasure at the barn.. which is so impeccably appointed This seems so incongruous....
I love it, and snapped off a few tendrils to enjoy the scent on my drive home.
