Living a simple life in a cottage by the sea.

It's Been a Lovely Week

"There ought to be gardens for all months in the year
 in which, severally, things of beauty may be then in season.
~Sir Francis Bacon

The other day I baked Autumn shaped sugar cookies.  You know, pumpkins, leaves, stars, moons, teapots and chickens!  My daughter said Autumn chickens Mom? Really?

One morning I found 8 eggs in the nesting boxes.  So I know 8 of the 9 girls are laying, (they all may be), one might not have felt like it that day!

I bought a few flowers for my little side garden.  The pansies and violas were calling my name...

Found this easy peasy rosewater recipe on Pinterest.  I still have a few late bloomers.  So I thought I'd give this a try.
I hope you all have a happy weekend.
