Basil, Sunflowers, and some mail art.

 I picked up a big bunch of basil at the farmers' market yesterday and made pesto. I put my recipe here. It turned out really delicious, so green and fresh. I love pesto.
 There were beautiful sun flowers at the market, too, but I didn't bring any home.
 This is what I brought home, a big hydrangea blossom from a bush that grows in the alleyway around the corner.
This is one of my #211 series that I completed today. Another Baby Leo altered card. I'm going to take the cards that I made today, to my workshop tomorrow, to show the participants how a simple alteration can make a big change.
You can see the other cards by going to the MailArt365 blog and clicking on Mim4art on the right side bar.

Hi Mim,
What a great combo: basil, sunflowers, and mail art. I got a farm share box packed with spinach, and made a great spinach pesto. The spinach seems to be abundantly in season. You might want to try it.

Visit mcfloozy.wordpress.com for the spinach pesto recipe!

I'm going to make some mailart today. happy 4th.
