Birthday Gifts

I am a shade plant, so I count yesterday's drop, on my birthday, to a cool and rainy 69 as a personal gift.
To celebrate I brought home fresh peaches from  Busa Farm in Arlington. It is a hidden gem, tucked off a main road not a mile from my local Trader Joes:
The rows of sunflowers were alive with bees and goldfinches.
I made birthday muffins with local blueberries.
  And noodles with basil and tomatoes from my porch garden.

 Suzanne Abrams, a new talent at Lowell Fiber Studio, surprised me with this lovely bag, made from fabric she hand printed. All this plus ice cream. A lovely day.
