April Showers Bring Flowers
Yesterday’s highlight was a wonderful small class at Pie Cottage! Three intrepid pie makers from around Washington state joined me for a jolly afternoon of pie making.We made rhubarb pies with just harvested stalks of ‘barb right out of my garden and we added in a few blueberries and sour cherries, too from the supply in my freezer. Did you know that you can mix fresh and frozen fruit together in the same pie with fabulous results? Their pies turned out just wonderfully. And we all delighted that indeed April showers bring flowers…beautiful colorful flowers!
Give Away Results
Thanks to the many who participated in the first give away on the blog. The winner of “Teeny’s Tour of Pies” is Lindsey Patry! What I just found out when Lindsey emailed back to give me her address, is that she was a former piano student of mine in the 1990′s. Lindsey is now married with children of her own! Wow! What a small world.
It was so much fun hearing from so many who entered that I’ve changed my mind about what this is all about. It’s all about connection, right? Sooooo, if and when the opportunity arises again to give away something that is pie related, I’d like to do another!
Pie Cottage Garden
My garden is looking delightful right now with all the spring blossoms. Every day I walk around and feel so incredibly blessed that I live in such a sweet and beautiful spot. When I moved to my little cottage in the late summer of 1999, there were no plantings to speak of, so everything that is here now is the result of years of loving work.
So Welcome to my garden! Here are a few pictures from today. I hope you enjoy them!
