Leap Year – Dinner on the Deck


Who would believe that we had 80 degree weather today. Elmer felt that it was time to harvest one of the cauliflower so off to the garden we went. With the weather so beautiful we spent the evening on the deck listening to the water fall and grilling a beautiful steak and our cauliflower harvest. We love to eat the cauliflower greens. We had a marvelous evening having dinner outside (again I must say……..IN FEBRUARY!!!!) and watching our glorious roadrunner come and show us his latest catch………a SNAKE! The ducks flew overhead, migrating back. WOW this is a strange winter. What a wonderful evening, and the sunset was tremendous. I took many, many pictures of it, but will not bore you with them all…………just one! Hoping you had a marvelous day also!

    • Theadora, if you are ever near the Emerald City, please let us know….you are more than welcome to visit anytime. You have brought such cheer to our lives with your incredible blog and most amazing stories and photographs. We speak of returning to Paris every day and visiting those amazing places you have shown us!

  1. 80 today and tomorrow….65 and freeze in the hill country this weekend…only in Texas! Your garden is beautiful, Elmer definetly has a green thumb…but not surprised, he lives in the Emerald City?!?

  2. How nice to enjoy your photos and look forward to when we can plant our garden. 30 and 14 inches of fresh fallen snow here in New Hampshire.

    • I LOVE New Hampshire (maybe not the winters so much)! In what a beautiful place you live. I will enjoy the hot winter weather for you and you enjoy the crunch of the snow for me. Can’t wait to make your salmon!…….and your Italy visit inspired me, as I am leaving for a culinary tour in about 4 weeks. Thanks for you all your wonderful photos, thoughts and insights.

      • I think you will like the virtual walk in the snow…I love the crunchy sound it makes underfoot. I know you will enjoy your culinary tour and I’m looking forward to you letting us know about it when you return.

  3. Every time you post pictures of your backyard I get more envious–the weather (while we had a blizzard this weekend in Amman), the food, and the waterfall!!! Is that a spa leading into the pool? Absolutely stunning setting for a dinner al fresco.
