exquisitely humble spud

Take a lovely French butter keeper,
(this one purchased during the Open Studio weekend, 
from Deborah at Flint Hill Pottery).

Fill it with the most special treat of local, organic butter.
Chop some homegrown chives.
Add some sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Heap on top of an organic baked potato, 
and you've got yourself a very fine bit of food.

Remembering where all these ingredients came from
while we held hands around the table made it all
taste even better.
Posted from our "bit of earth",
where I did not, in fact, 
miss the blooming of the lupine after all.


  1. It is obvious that you surround yourself with the most beautiful, useful and and simple elements.

  2. Praise be! I am glad, Karen.

  3. That potato looks yummy:) and the lupines very beautiful indeed!

  4. glad you didn't miss the lupines!
