~Sunflowers Swinging in the Breeze and Simple & Sweet Fridays #76~

Stan and the kids had made a swing for the garden.
I wanted to paint it a color so you could see it up on the hill.
I love the duck egg color and thought it would be a perfect shade.
Stan hung it next to our distressed window.
I placed some flowers on the rope.
Very Romantic!
I picked some fresh sunflowers and displayed them on the swing.
Love the etched glass bottle.
After playing in the garden, I wanted to try and make this
 Fresh Cherry Tart recipe.
Just make a pastry shell and bake,
 then place your cherries on top.
Mix together heavy cream, confectioner sugar and vanilla.
Drizzle the sweetened cream over the cherries.
I got the recipe from my new Potager cooking book.
Very French and so good!

Happy Thursday everyone!
Last weeks Simple & Sweet Favorites!
