A NICE DAY OUT

My friend, Deb Ward, and I had a nice outing Wednesday, driving to Commiskey, Indiana, to the Stream Cliff Herb Farm.  We walked around, looking at the flowers and herbs and taking photos - and then had a scrumptuous lunch at the tea room.   I had dill and rosemary chicken salad on greens and Deb had the mozzarella and tomato salad, leaving room for the light and lovely lemon cake which Deb let me taste - yum!! 

Here are some photos from the day...




Indiana's oldest herb farm, this house is still occupied by the present owner, Elizabeth Manning.  The family has lived and worked at the farm for five generations.   








A lot of little paths and arches draped with blooming flowers.































A sunny garden, blooming flowers everywhere, and a shaded table.  What could be better?










Plenty of little red wagons to take the purchases to the car and many flowers and herbs for sale.

Aw, how fun to use wagons instead of carts! That looks like a really nice day! And the salads... yum!

Aloha Rhonda,
First, let me say thanks for your concern about our impending weather. On O'ahu, we're expecting some fairly gusty winds and some rain, but the Big Island is about to receive the real hit. But, enough about us.
What a wonderful day you two enjoyed. Reminded me of all the good things I enjoyed as a kid growing up in Michigan.
Have a great day, Rhonda!
Sincerely,
Gary.

What a nice day. And it looks so beautiful and lush there. I am sitting at work staring at computer. I'd rather be with you. :)

The food was great, the company was great, couldn't ask for a better day. There were so many wonderful choices for lunch, it took us a while to decide!

Aloha, Gary. Hope your weather predictors are right about you just getting gusty wind and rain.

Carol and Sherry, yes, you would have been welcome to join us!
