Theme Thursday - Grow!

This week's theme: Grow!

This little basil plant I picked up for $5.00 in a tin can.  You water it and let it grow.  I lost it, forgot about it, and then mentioned it to Jason the other day.  We finally found it hiding in the backyard and it had sprouted!!  I expect big things from this basil plant.  I live on caprese in the summer and can't afford it anymore because the basil is too expensive to buy in those $5 packets that only last me one lunch.

So this will be my bread and butter: 

I'm going to make lots of raw milk mozzarella to go with this even if it is saddest ratio ever.

Look what we found hiding in the corner!!

Then, while I was in the backyard snapping a few photos, I realized I haven't shared my favorite thing ever: The neighbor's backyard:

We live right across the street from the richest people on the block.  They own the local internet/cable provider.  And in their huge backyard, in between the greenhouse and the pool is this:

Just seeing it every day makes me happy.  I keep expecting some big-toothed Brit to pop his head over the fence and bid me a "S'appening??"  I'm sure it will never happen, but the possibility still makes me happy to live here.  

Never say never, right?

Now, go visit Cari to see the rest of the submissions!!
