Not your typical Easter basket, is it? LOL. I loved it and I won $29. Did you notice DH used my sled coffee table for the basket? Very clever of him.
He also came home yesterday with two new half whiskey barrels for me.
I have been asking him to pick up two more. I want to leave them empty and just fill them with the plastic containers I overwinter. I think I can fit at least five of them in each barrel. In the fall, I will just lift them back out and put them in their winter home. I am going for a less cluttered look on the deck this year.
We have an 11:00 a.m. Easter potluck brunch to go to. I am making the blueberry french toast casserole that I made last year. Patti from Osage Bluff sent me the recipe--thanks again, Patti!
There is even a third cup of pure maple syrup in it. The fake stuff just does not compare.
It is very delish with cream cheese and blueberries throughout. It sit overnight in the refrigerator so the bread can absorb all the eggs. Once I bake it, it gets topped with a thickened layer of blueberries.
You can find the recipe all over the net. Just search for "blueberry french toast" recipe.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
