her green life is one month old

In bloom

After last week’s suffocating heat, this week has been a pleasure.  We enjoyed a vegetarian potluck and outdoor music at the botanical garden last night, and I snapped some shots of the blooming lotuses.  (I really wanted to call them “loti.”)  We made a roasted beet*, cucumber**, and sweet onion** salad for the event.  My favorite dish of the evening was the potato salad sandwiches.  It sounds odd, but it tasted delicious, and I was craving a sandwich.  Many of the dishes contained local ingredients, either from personal gardens, CSAs, or farmer’s markets — way to go!

* Food we grew.

** Food grown locally that we purchased from the farmer’s market or farmer.
