Lemons, Limes and Lavender


Today we honored the simplicity of lemons, limes, lavender and strawberries.




The girls enjoyed making their own refreshing drinks. No recipe, no rules, just a squeeze of this....




And a pinch of that.....



Added some strawberries...................


And had simple perfection!



Fauna enjoying her drink.



Rainy enjoying a lime.



Saved the seeds to be planted for future simplicity.

The ladies came up with the idea...they are always in the kitchen making "refreshing" and many times crazy things!

How fun! Now I want some fresh lemon to put in my water. A bottle of lemon juice just doesn't have the same taste!

Your daughter's eyelashes are to die for!

Makes my mouth pucker just looking at sucking on a lime! I've never had lavender like that, only in ice cream/sorbet.
