Is there anything more beautiful than a stockpot full of summer?

I had a yen for chicken soup, so yesterday I cooked up a batch. The peas, carrots, beans, spuds (red, white, and purple) and onions were all from my garden, and they looked so vibrant and full of life that I had to take their picture.

Add some celery (I've never even had celery seeds sprout in my garden), and the chicken, of course, with some chicken broth and seasonings, and let it cook. Later on I put in some cream - I prefer a thicker soup.

Serve with fresh bread. Mmm!
