I will bet my bottom dollar that my Mom makes the best rhubarb pie in the world. Her home made pie crusts melt in your mouth! So when she picked the rhubarb yesterday and announced she would be making rhubarb pie and if Dave and I would like to come over later....... it's all I could think about!
Between thunder storms today I snuck over and took a few photos of the back and front yards at her new house. Having her so close to me has had it's blessings but I've had a little more garden and yard work as I've been helping her plant and clean up her yard besides doing my own!
She has a nice back yard and a little electric lawn mower. She even mowed the yard with a little help on the hillside but I think it tuckered her out!
She has a little rat terrier dog named Hans. He is quite the wild animal and super smart! He tuckers her out as well!
The front entrance to her house.
The back patio and deck.
The former owners had it all nicely landscaped with lots of nice hostas and other perennial plants.
The deck off the upstairs.
The bottom patio.
We were fortunate to find this house right in our neighborhood so close to me. I really like this house!
I think she is getting used to town living and seems happier each day.
By the time Dave and I could make the quick walk over this afternoon for the pie feast, Mom had already eaten half the pie! She didn't make her pie crust from scratch this time but used those frozen ones that you fold out. It was still delicious and now she says the next thing she's going to make is Great Grandma's secret recipe for Sour Gravy Rhubarb Cake. It is an old German recipe that Great Grandma wouldn't share with anyone. Evidently when my Grandmother died the recipe was in her old metal recipe box. My Mom has it. Maybe if we talk nice to her..........
