What I'm Crushin' On

This morning I got a lil' distracted reading my own blog.
Entry upon entry about travel - and all the places we visit -
When I started my blog, I never wanted the blog to become one dimensional...
I wanted it to be diverse and fun.
My initial thought was to share with you, the little things that make life enjoyable. 
The little things that make "my" life fun.

We do enjoy traveling, mostly day trips, adventures we can take in the car.
We never have to travel far because we live in New Jersey...the Garden State
and there is always something beautiful to see, or something fun to do.
Getting back on topic...
here's what I have been crushin' on lately...

Beautiful Tulips from my garden...

A Birds Nest was a heart, the egg did not cooperate.

The Tulip Garden around my mailbox...
The hubs plants the bulbs every fall, usually on Thanksgiving Day...
I call these my "Spring Surprises".

Homemade Short Ribs on a rainy day...there are no words, 
this is probably one of the best meals I make.

Black Tea...
I had this at IHop and it was really good.

Enough Dill from my Herb Garden...

to make my yummy pasta salad. yummy yarn for more washcloth knitting.

These Hydro Flasks
Gifted to us at Christmas by my niece Emily.
These Flasks are amazing, keeping food hot or drinks cold for 24 hours.
We use them all the time and love them!!

The purple one is mine,

Longwood Gardens - Part IIII

Longwood Gardens 
has an area devoted to Bonsai Trees
Not as colorful as the other areas of Longwood Gardens but very beautiful just the same.

The training on some of their older plants began in the early 1900's.
If you are interested in the history of the trees, you can read about it here.
