Our in-house herbalist, Tammy Schmidt, presented us with a delicious nutritive tea. She had some of her luscious skin serum available, as well as tasty lip balm, Vanilla Maple seasoning, and her infamous teas. Come by to see what other fresh herbal concoctions are a-brewin’.

An online gallery of the small works is available, works can be viewed and purchased here.

Happy Pieday!

Our reader Laurie Aaron Dahlquist recently uploaded some beautiful images to our Facebook Page, along the theme of Stayin’ Cool in August. Laurie (like many of us) is a member of a CSA Farm. We wrote one of our first articles on Fleurbain about our own little CSA farm; they hold a dear place in our hearts!

Here are the amazing pics Laurie took of her fruit and veg the other day:

Some of Laurie's CSA delivery this week.

What better way to cool off than with some fresh, organic fruit and veg that helps support local farms and biodiversity? Is there any?

mmmm look so crunchy and delicious and cooling...

She mentions: “I’m stayin’ cool in August with this frozen banana, blueberry, nectarine, scoop of PB, drizzle of maple syrup, almond milk smoothie. Yum!”

Yum indeed!!! Oh, my stars! Thanks, Julie!

Stayin’ Cool. Ice cream? Shade? What do you do to stay cool in August?

Do you spend your weekends in the heat, volunteering for your favorite cause (that’s cool!) or do you sit poolside with drink in hand? Mojitos, anyone?

Air conditioners, fans, umbrellas, water… greenscapes… let your photography and imagination run wild on the theme of “Stayin’ Cool” and then send us your pics for inclusion in this blog either by emailing fleurbain@gmail.com or by posting your pic directly on our Facebook Page’s wall.

Stay cool everyone!

From “David Suzuki’s Queen of Green“, comes this Youtube video:

I am a fan of hers on Facebook. I love Facebook for the tailored information and priceless international contacts I’ve made.

All that aside, though, I am looking forward to buying an orange and a little rum to make my OWN hairspray!

Oh, yes!!!
