Zinnias & Chamomile

A few weeks ago, my mom and I went to pick raspberries at my new favorite farm, Butler's Orchard.  We'd gotten blueberries and blackberries earlier in the season; both were fantastic, and I'm sure I'll eat through my stock of frozen and canned fruit before next summer.  It was a fun afternoon.

On the way back, we saw a field of gorgeous flowers and stopped to pick there, too.  All you see here, plus a handful of Cosmos that didn't make it to the photograph: $6.  Except for said Cosmos, the flowers lasted over a week, perfuming and delighting the rooms of my house.


I love it when I can enjoy beauty without feeling guilty!
