Fresh Spring Salad

Fresh Spring Salad with Figs

Salad in a white bowl

Late spring is abundant with fresh greens, and to these we add dry figs, tomatoes, avocado and you add your favorite salad dressing. 

Ingredients:
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Asparagus 
  • dried figs 4 diced
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • cherry tomatoes or 2 medium tomatoes cubed   

Avocado tomato spinach asparagus
You decide on the quantity and ratio of spinach to kale, and the amount of asparagus.  We took this salad to a family reunion with a variety of salad dressings, we brought none of it home.

Knitting the Sky

June 2014

June 2014 a calendar and bowl of yarn

The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn't it be? — it is the same the angels breathe.
~Mark Twain, "Roughing It"
nine pictures of the sky in June 2014

For the past six months I have looked at the sky above me, initially it was to decide the colour combination I would knit and with each passing day I discover new vistas in the blue that surrounds this small planet of ours.  Each sky tells a story of its own never the same colours or spaces.
