|One small fennel. . .|
|some cabbage. . .|
Vegetable soup is simmering in the kitchen with homemade chicken stock as the base and the fresh vegetables from yesterday's market: carrots, baby navet (turnips), leeks, celery, one onion pierced with cloves, a small bulb of fennel, a handful or two of haricot verts, some cabbage and a bouquet garni. It should be good.
Next on the agenda, arrange the two bunches of coral tulips purchased yesterday.
And finally, I plan to head out to see if I can find some red anemones. Last week I had an all white bouquet, this week I would like one in red. If I can find that luscious purple-y blue, I'll snap them up.
I'll show you the bouquets next week.
Weather report: Cold -- really cold -- bright, cheery, morale-lifting sunshine, early morning frost. Lovely.
A demain mes trés, trés, trés chers ami for the weekly round up which will be exceptionally, particularly interesting.
