Since many of my days are filled working on the garden, garden shed and when possible (when it's not too hot), working on my computer on the porch. I wanted to share a little refreshment with you today.
A little bit of coolness & deliciousness that takes barely any time at all.
I was fortunate to find French berries, called Mara des Bois here at Shelton's, our local natural foods store on Sunday. I wanted to share some very simple libations or as they're happily referred to here - concoctions, using the berries:
|Mara des Bois Berries • Sofia • Vintage French Juice Glasses|
Above, here's Sofia in darling cans with a pink straw attached to the can. I like them just like this... Ready to place in our picnic basket and walk to town concerts.
Mara des Bois and little sprigs of our special garden mint of taste for this year:
You will see the berries are not perfect, they're organic. Delicious and free from pesticides. You know, the way nature intended - all different, all beautiful in their own way.
Now, if you don't care to use sparkling wine, you could go with your favorite bottled, sparkling water. This is my favorite sparkling water of the moment: Voss
It's so good, big bubbles, crisp and the bottle keeps it crisp until the last little bit. That usually doesn't happen with other waters - I love that about this water. Are you able to tell... I like my sparkling water absolutely crisp?! It's true.
So our berries are ready to slice thinly, along with some organic, fresh lime mint from our garden:

Berries... Ready to slice - yum!
The best things in life are truly the simplest: One tiny sprig of lime mint and Mara des Bois (in a vintage glass, of course):
I love how it sparkles!
I hope you'll look into getting some fresh berries in your area if you haven't already, and savor the little things in life.
A little refreshment for the palate and for the soul!
That's it for today. I'm off to wrap a few parcels for clients... Quickly but very pretty, before the nicest mailman in the world arrives to pick them up.
Have a great week!
