It's about living--the back porch

The presence of death makes you value life.
Dinner last night with Chef Susan on the back porch, herb garden in the background.
Menu...Rib eye, roasted tomatoes with fresh sweet basil, salad of butter and Romaine lettuce with avocados, fresh parmesan, olive oil and balsamic from Sicili, Italian parsley for garnis and sweet basil  for fragrance.

And my Herb garden...
