The garden is a bit empty at this time of year. The citrus has almost all been picked and the vege patch is yielding mainly herbs. I did find some rocket though, and cobbled together a lunchtime salad — grapefruit, rocket, a few toasted walnuts and some crumbled feta. The vinaigrette was leftover from another dish, and contains juice from a couple of our not-very-sweet oranges.

Regular Random is a photo challenge hosted by Desley Jane at Musings of a Frequently Flying Scientist  — who takes the most beautiful, swoon-inducing images (of food and flowers especially). Please pop over and take a look, and if you’d like to join in:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post

The weather is being kind to us at the moment, and the Big T was on dinner duty. Cue BBQ prawns, with a tomato and coriander salad and some fresh basil oil. Enjoyed al fresco of course!
