Welcome to Friday! It's supposed to be another scorcher in the Philadelphia area, but for now the sky is a bit cloudy which I welcome...keeping the heat away for a bit longer.
Discovered yesterday that our Milkweed is blooming! So pretty and so very fragrant. Hoping the butterflies will come.
Other than green beans (of which there are plenty to an over-abundance), things are a bit slow in the garden. our cherry tomatoes are beginning to ripen, but we only get 2-4 at a time.
Our regular tomatoes are forming, but are still very, very green. I love fried green tomatoes, but really would prefer to have some ripe ones first.
I'm growing two eggplant plants in an old cast iron pot that we keep near our patio. They have been blooming like crazy and we finally noticed the beginning of fruit on them. Can't wait. I love grilled eggplant and it's really good on pizza too.
I've got a conference call this morning and then need to run out to the liquor store. Mary posted about a frozen watermelon drink yesterday that I MUST make. Just need the St. Germain and discovered last night that we are very low on gin. Not sure how that happened....then I'm off to Trader Joe's to pick up a few things.
It's Friday and also still summer, so I leave work at 3 today. YAY! The only thing we have going on this weekend is dinner at Colin & Mailing's tomorrow night. Looking forward to that.
Last night I managed to cast on the 2nd sock and knit about 2/3 of the cuff...need/want to make significant progress on that this weekend.
I'll leave you with a bunch of cuteness. Marcel (one of Colin & Mailing's cats) turned 4 on Monday. This is such a cute shot of their cats in younger days -- Talbot with his beautiful arm (I love that mark of white) around Marcel.
