Lazy Days of August

My son Shane in Lake Tahoe, so carefree.....

Such a simple firepit.

Easy Summer eating.

Farm Fresh To You delivers locally grown 
produce to L.A. and Orange County.

In full bloom.......the Lady Banks Rose.

My uniform this Summer.  

A rustic Summer place setting.

Miscanthus sinensis 'Little Kitten'.  I love this Miscanthus because it is a dwarf and only grows to 3' tall.  Perfect for a patio garden.

My Summer hat.

Our Summer Cocktail........a peach margarita, ahhh!

Peach Margaritas
1/2 part fresh lime juice and 1/2 part peach nectar
1 part Peach Schnapps
1-2 parts tequila
1/4 part agave nectar

Me enjoying the slow pace of Lake Tahoe. 

The simplest chaise lounge I can find.

Simple Summer cooking, Salmon with red potatoes, sweet potatoes, shallots and green onions wrapped in parchment, cooked on a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.  So easy! 

Transport meals outside on these wood boards 
as serving trays from Canvas.  

My boys Henry (15) and J.P. (13) enjoying Lake Tahoe.

I love this bowl filled with berries 

An appetizer tray from our last BBQ.

Soap made with English Lavender.

A morning walk at Bacara in Santa Barbara. 

Our family Summer Trip to Lake Tahoe.
