Sweet Pea Day!
Last week was Sweet Pea Day at Summers Past Farm. The sweet peas are blooming, and there's nothing quite like that fragrance. Unfortunately, the event was just a bit early, in that many of the flowers weren't quite ready for cutting. But it's still fun to go to events and fun places, and this is a perfect place to picnic. They've got some great classes on things like herbal soap-making, but the price is a bit too steep for my pocketbook. I would like to learn how to make some glycerin soap bars with cut soap shapes inside. They don't teach that class because they say it's really easy to learn on your own (guess I'd better look into library books). They do sell wonderful glycerin soaps there though for $5.95 per bar--I especially like the seahorse and bee-shaped ones. Expect to be greeted by their huge yellow mascot kitty and the friendly banti rooster.
