dark and lovely


Yesterday morning I was woken by a huge crack of thunder as another dramatic storm slammed into Washington. Yet another chased me home in the evening, dark clouds casting a green tinge over the city. Funny weather.

Speaking of green ~ for those of you who love the idea of a lemon verbena gimlet, but don't have a ready supply in the backyard, a friend of mine suggested trying this version with basil.

Oh my, that recipe sounds perfect for this balmy, green weather.

OMG - that sounds like it might be a close second to a Mojito! You know how I feel about the basil...I must make these gimlets for my housewarming (whenever that might be)

I am loving these stormy days! The top photo is terrific.

Christine ~ I look forward to toasting your new home with a bouquet of basil!

These are the simplest but most evocative images of
a thunder storm and the strange light that comes with it. Absolutely love them. Less is MORE.
