Good pickles and Georgia love

With some recipes, like pickles, you have to wait a day or two (or a week or so) before you can really give the verdict. We opened our refrigerator pickles after 48 hours, and they are pretty great! One caveat-too much vinegar-I'll try again with increased water to vinegar ratio.

Also, we had a bit of a storm. The flowers loved it! Both of these are perennials, chosen and planted by Gustavo last summer. What can I say? The kid has good taste :) Check out the happy bee on that coneflower:

Now that it is June, it has been seven years since I left Detroit and moved to Georgia, knowing no one and nothing about my destination. I really do think it was the best, albeit completely random at the time, decision I have ever made. I love you, Atlanta, Georgia. You have introduced me to innumerable fantastic people. I could easily live my life out here.

Isn't it funny how one simple decision can change your entire life for the better?
Daises are my favorite flower. :)
And I totally eat ketchup with green beans. (You know, when no one is looking) ;)

Sometimes the random choices are the best. Your garden looks wonderful!
