Sorting the Black Mission and Bright yellow green Calymyrna figs waiting to be poached, I was enveloped in memories of long summer evenings years ago. It was, what I would call the idyllic, and, therefore, very short period in my life--we lived at the end of a cul-de-sac on Mariposa Way, in Lodi, California for 18 months and just when it seemed that this would be a permanent paradise, my father was transferred to a place that was unimaginably far away and completely foreign: Golden Valley, Minnesota.
The sun came out to celebrate Ingrid's Birthday at the Gardens on Saturday.
Surrounded by family and colleagues--friends all--Ingrid was toasted and reigned over her fete that was hosted by long, not old, friends Peg, Becca, & Marilyn. Chronia sou Polla, Ingrid!
