Flowers and Food

bay leaves

It’s the little things that make me happy. We have such limited but good outdoor space that I’m trying to add things that can have a little function too. I have or we have, always wanted a bay tree. Haven’t had much luck with the nurseries here until this weekend. We found a great sweet…
