i found a great little cafe here in highland park, kitchen mouse that serves plant-based food. it’s just down the street and i’ve been meaning to try it since it opened a few years ago.
i’ve been twice in the last week for breakfast tacos and a buffalo bowl.
really nice to have a healthy eating-out option so close.
highly recommended if you are local. bright flavors that are utterly delicious.
the dining room is also lovely and a perfect place to bring a journal or a book.
the fruit trees are continuing to bloom along with fragrant mounds of wisteria in the public gardens & parks i visit regularly.
bright bouquets of clivia resting in the dappled light.
i always stop at this bench to chat with the squirrels who gather here.
and to admire the clivia!
the victorian box trees (Pittosporum undulatum) have been filling the night air with perfume. i am lucky to have a large tree a few doors down which sends it’s flowery perfume in a cloud that wraps around moss cottage as soon as the sun sets.
made some hummus from scratch in my instapot. well not totally in the pot! i did have to transfer to the blender once the garbanzo beans were cooked.
still playing around with my rough watercolor paper. this isn’t finished…
one of you told me about queen victoria’s sketchbook. if you watch VICTORIA , i think her sketchbook will interest you!
wyatt went back into surgery this past week – some reconstruction on his eye. a couple of my students wrote him notes.
i had intended to include many more photos but alas there were only a few on my camera roll.
nothing terribly exciting to report. just ordinary days.
resting here in my green nest.
waiting for more rain to arrive this week.
hope you’re well. puttering away there in your world. keep me posted.
