I've mentioned my "affection" for Pinterest before, but I've just got to say there are some really great ideas posted on the site...linking back to some blogs that I would never have found on my own.  I especially like the gardening/home dec/entertaining inspiration boards. 

I went outside this morning to take pictures of "how my garden grows", but found that the camera battery was dead, so instead, today's post will be "here's what's for lunch":
Pretty dramatic, huh?  A long strip of cucumber wrapped to hold spring mix and carrots.  Easy and elegant.  I "heart" Pinterest and all of the interesting and creative people who contribute to it.
