A refreshing summer drink-- mango-banana shake in a tall glass and a chance to display my cross-stitch!
The ingredients--to serve four, you need two bananas, two mangoes. Slice the fruit and into the blender they go. Add condensed milk along with milk, blend. Pour into tall glasses. Voila! Anybody needs some more ice?
Mango with cream makes a delicious dessert. I couldn't resist using a bit of blue. The sprig of wild grass was plucked from the backyard. I think it belongs to the sedge family. I simply love the way the long, slender blades droop....
Glory be to God for dappled things- For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches' wings; Landscape plotted and pieced--fold, fallow, and plough; And all trades, their gear and tackle and trim. All things counter, original, spare, strange; Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?) With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim; He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change: Praise him. Gerard Manley Hopkins
The first flowering shrub I planted on our land
Every flower is a soul blooming in Nature.-Gerard De Nerval
Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself? -Henry David Thoreau
