One of the things we especially love about our new house is the huge yard. Of course, it's also one of the most overwhelming things. There is so much to take care of. But while we're working outside every single weekend for as long as we live there, I'll keep dreaming up the dinner parties I want to have in the front yard. Lights strewn above in the giant trees, pretty vintage cloth napkins, fresh flowers on the table... (Don't remind me that the blazing summer heat is just around the corner.)
This weekend we spent hours picking grapefruit, lemons and oranges from our citrus trees. Our whole house smells like it now and even though I gave away bags to family, there's still plenty. If you want some, let me know.
p.s. I don't usually cut my grapefruit that way. I just thought it looked like a Rothko in fruit form, and that made me smile.
