Photo Inspiration ~ Bread

"The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You're one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you're two months back in the middle of March."

- Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926


Sourdough bread from the bakery.


Today the photo inspiration is bread

Tomato Basil Soup~

Milk Glass jar from the thrift store makes a perfect vase for my flowers.

That certainly looks better than my lunches. I can almost smell the coffee being poured into your pretty pansy mug.

Clara,
Your pansy cup is beautiful. I think pansies have such a delicate beauty, with almost face-like blooms. Wish I had a piece of that sourdough bread with a spread of butter! I am a new follower of Rosewalk Cottage and from what I have seen, your blog is lovely. The music is so soothing. I am fairly new to blogging (less than a year) and haven't mastered all the techniques...music, etc. Please stop by Still Woods Farmhouse for a chat!
