Home again Vancouver

Walking around the house at 2am.
Yup, jet-lag. 🙂 Eventually I’ll sleep. 🙂

But it’s all so beautiful and peaceful at 2am. Here, we have street lights so there is always a gentle glow outside. I miss the beautiful intense darkness of West Cottage but it’s lovely to sit in the living room at night and look out of the window.

There’s raccoons!

In the morning there’s bed ferrets!

Hello Milo my boy!

Although there’s rain in the forecast for the next two days, there’s a little sun peeking thru the clouds here and there.

The breaks in the clouds gave me a chance to get some tomatoes from the garden. I thought I’d go get the ripe ones and some basil and make a salad for lunch, but I wasn’t expecting this many fresh ripe tomatoes.

This one’s for my salad and the rest will probably end up in a lovely fresh sauce or salsa or something yummy.

    Welcome Back Veronica!! Really, you should be a food artist–wait! you are a food artist 🙂 You are making me so hungry/jealous with all those beautiful homegrown tomatoes (LOVE them!). Enjoy all their juicy tart earthy sweetness, for you and for me 😉 Hugs to Milo (he is soooo cute!)

    Oh yes… that is a lot of tomatoes. We barely had that many all summer this year, was a very bad year for tomatoes here.

    Wow, I’m impressed that you can come home from being across the pond and find such wonderful tomatoes in your garden!! You must have garden fairies or gnomes at work for you while you are gone. 🙂
