Cucumber Lime Slushy

August 17th, 2011 at 01:08 pm

Thanks, Joan of the Arch, for the cucumber-lime slushy recipe. I used the juice and pulp of two whole limes, probably way more than I needed, and just a teaspoon of Truvia, but it was way too tart, so had to add quite a bit of sugar, but yum, it certainly was very refreshing.

This morning I needed some kind of mental break, so I took a trip to a nearby garden I went to two summers ago. If you'd like to see the pix, visit my other blog here.

On the way home, I stopped at Trader Joe's and then at a local garden nursery I enjoyed just as much as the gardens. They are really good at doing planters filled with succulents (a favorite for me).

See how great they are...

The colander they've used here as a planter has built-in drainage. Just add sphagnum moss. Clever!

A tricycle planter.

I've always wanted one of these, but they're expensive.

One of the many greenhouses.

A gorgeous succulent planter.

And you should see their gift shop. OMG, it just makes me drool.
