Our weather was much warmer today with the temperature hitting around 70 degrees.
Jingles joined me outside while I watered plants and swept both balconies.
Birds were flitting overheard filling the air with their birdsong.
I collected an eggshell, different colored dried leaves, flower petals and a feather. I always wonder where the birds build their nests here.
A couple of months ago, I spied this tree with a little clump of twigs in its center. They were so perfectly positioned, I knew it had to be a nest. It is the one and only time I have ever seen one around here.
After a bit of cleaning inside, I sat down to make a couple more covered jars.
And then made cream of zucchini soup for dinner.
Saute 1 small chopped onion, 4 cloves of minced garlic and 6 diced zucchini in a little bit of olive oil til soft. Add 8 cups of vegetable stock, salt and black pepper to taste and about a tsp of curry powder. Bring to a boil, then simmer til tender. Add 4 TSB of sour cream and blend in batches til smooth. Serve with a sprinkling of paprika powder.
Hope you are having a simply perfect day, too.
