Pineapple Carving and Summer Projects

If you love fresh pineapple, then you also know how irritating it is wasting half of a pineapple cutting off the knots. I learned from a friend that in the Philippines, they cut their pineapples this way so that they waste less. Plus, the spiral design just looks cool. This was my first attempt at the spiral cut pineapple. Wouldn't this be a lovely centerpiece at a summer meal?
I love flowers and gardens! As each summer comes and goes, I long for the moment when I can have my own little flower garden. I have always been in an apartment where I have no space to actually plant flowers. However, this year, I have a tiny little yard that's about 8 feet by 8 feet. I have visions of Return to Me where she has her beautiful garden in the midst of the city. That's what I want to have. I was inspired when I went to Walmart to buy better soil for my indoor plants. I saw such a great variety of beautiful flowers and imagined the possibilities. I figure I'm going to need a summer project so that I don't go crazy with just work and looking for a post-college job. I'm excited. I think I will buy them this weekend and it will almost be time to start planting :)!!
