Kitchen Round-up!

This morning I decided to cut a few fresh flowers for the kitchen. Pickens were a little slim around our garden so I ended up with branches from our Weeping Willow tree and a few pears. While cutting the little tree branches I saw something leap out of the sink from the corner of my eye! Imagine my complete and utter surprise when the little critter leaped from the counter and onto my head! Yes, screams could be heard from miles away I’m sure as I swatted at the Grasshopper now perched on top of my head. He was quickly rounded up and life at our cottage is normal once again……………

I suppose by now, you've heard about all the drama at the Back Porch this week.

Hilarious!
I would have freaked too.
Des, I seriously have kitchen envy.
I love everything about yours.
My next house will take many cues from yours.
